“Spaces like the Innovation Lab and Biotechnology Lab as well as experiential learning programs like Interim and the Turner Fellowship ensure our students take what they are learning and put it into action. As we expand our programs, we open up new opportunities for our students to lead.”

– Prentice Stabler,
Associate Head of School

OUR GOAL
Develop innovative educational initiatives across our pre-kindergarten through grade 12 community, including expanding experiential opportunities in entrepreneurship, environmental and social responsibility, global engagement, and emerging science and technologies

STRATEGIC RATIONALE
Our graduates must be able to creatively solve problems, demonstrating grit, resilience, and the ability to think nimbly in a rapidly changing world. We must continually innovate by developing academic and co-curricular programs that enhance existing experiences for students to lead and grow as thoughtful, well-balanced individuals committed to serving the broader community.

ACTION STEPS

  • Continue to develop comprehensive programming that supports a culture of health and wellness for students and faculty
  • Expand environmental sustainability programs across campus
  • Enhance opportunities for students pre-kindergarten through grade 12 to engage with a wider global community through virtual partnerships and international travel
