Strategic Initiatives

During the 2021-2022 academic year, Saint Andrew’s School launched a comprehensive strategic planning process.

The strategic plan was developed to provide a long-range view of future school priorities created through an inclusive and participatory process.

Five key initiatives


A steering committee was formed and focused on research, environmental scans, SWOT analysis, committee exercises, and trends in the independent school and the education sectors.  

In order to build a base of sound information and to guide the planning process, the school enlisted the assistance of a research and planning firm, Ian Symmonds & Associates. The strategic planning steering committee worked collaboratively through a series of exercises designed to establish priorities based on the findings of the research. The steering committee also took time to refine the school’s mission and vision statements. The goal was to keep the mission as succinct as possible and to untether the vision from the prior strategic plan while representing the foundation upon which Saint Andrew’s School was established and its enduring value in the educational marketplace.

This planning process culminated in the spring of 2022, with the steering committee developing a set of priorities for future focus. As strategic priorities were developed, the steering committee expanded upon them to outline specific initiatives, action plans, and a series of sequenced priorities. Each of these strategic goals contains several strategic initiatives and numerous action plans. As we move forward, we will continue to update the community on the implementation of the main initiatives, action plans, and metrics for success.
