Strategic Plan

To New Heights

St. John's engages in long-range and strategic thinking to support the continuous growth and development of the school. In 2022, a committee comprised of Administrators, Trustees, and Parents met to review the 2016 Strategic Plan and determine inspirational and aspirational strategic intent and goals for the future of St. John's Episcopal School. Following their recommendations, the St. John's Board of Trustees approved a clearly stated multi-year strategic plan that outlines the major goals and strategies for school improvement and established the strategic priorities for the school. The Board monitors progress towards its strategic goals on an annual basis.
