Dear Friends & Colleagues,
This is such an important moment for our school. Following the unprecedented disruption to the educational calendar these past two years, it is wonderful to see the campus alive with the vibrance of a full schedule of educational opportunities and activities. It is time to look forward now, and to maximize the school’s potential for all members of our community.
Over the past two months the Board of Trustees, in collaboration with members of the school’s leadership team, have completed a detailed and thoughtful strategic planning process to serve as a road-map for the coming two years. Having sought feedback from faculty, staff, students, parents, alumnae, and friends, in the hopes of understanding the many strengths and challenges facing Saint Mary’s School, we are delighted to be able to present these short-term strategic goals.
A community dedicated to academic excellence and personal achievement in preparing young women for college and life remains Saint Mary’s mission. And it’s our mission that is the cornerstone of this strategic plan. The goals listed will leverage our strengths and successes and further position us to make bold and courageous choices that will further strengthen the work we do in support of our mission.
The plan challenges us to take our approach to education, administration, and leadership to new heights. It commits to honor the talented community of students that we serve and lays a foundation for a truly exciting future. Overseeing the implementation of the strategic plan and outcomes that are impactful will be a top priority of the board and the school’s leadership.
We could not be more pleased with the passion, enthusiasm, and affinity so many have for this truly special place. We are so grateful to everyone in our community—past, present, and future—for making Saint Mary’s School the wonderful institution it is.
Yours in education,
Adam Holden, Ed.D.
Interim Head of School
