Dear Holy Comforter Episcopal School Community,
It is with great pride that we share with you the culmination of an entire year of work completed by the Board of Trustees, parents, faculty, alumni, and administration in our new Five-Year Strategic Plan 2018-2023. Working together, we produced the final plan and it was approved by the Board of Trustees in May 2017. The focus of the new Strategic Plan is on five specific areas that will serve as our road map during the next five years. The focus areas are: Academics and Learning, Advancement and Growth, Athletics, Finance and Sustainability, Spiritual Life and Episcopal Identity.
As with any successful planning process, we began with a review and reaffirmation of our mission. Holy Comforter remains committed to its vision of developing students, lifelong learners, and productive citizens. Providing academic excellence in all disciplines, while embracing the development of the whole-child, continues to be the driving force behind what we do as educators each day.
While reaffirming Holy Comforter Episcopal School’s tradition of educational distinction, we must also continuously look for ways to enhance and develop programs to best prepare our students for their future. By all measures, our students will be competing and living in an increasingly diverse, global community. Preparing students to appreciate, respect, and understand such a community is essential if we are to develop future citizens and leaders of the world.
As we prepare to implement this ambitious plan, we know that the key to Holy Comforter Episcopal School’s success has always been its people – faculty, students, alumni, parents, grandparents and friends – working together as one community. We are excited about the outcome of the strategic planning process and are delighted to share the results with you.
Thank you for your partnership and continued support.
Vince Russo Peter Klekamp
Chair, Board of Trustees Head of School
