Redefining the Classroom and Bringing Learning to Life
In the spring of 2022 Allendale Columbia School partnered with the National Association of Independent School (NAIS) to dive into a strategic planning process. The goal was to create a three- to five-year plan outlining strategic priorities to lead the future of AC.
With clear direction over the next three years, our key strategic priorities—based on research, universal best practices, and stakeholder feedback—will reinforce an educational experience unique from anywhere else in our region. We will draw in and retain more families, faculty, and experts in the field to affirm Allendale Columbia’s foothold as a regional leader in education.
Our goals are ambitious. We continue to push boundaries and break down barriers to help confront the challenges that surround us, near and far. We immerse ourselves in outreach— to broaden volunteerism, elevate mentorship, empower ownership, support scholarship, boost pride, and live the AC mission. Because relationship building is at the heart of all we do—for a diverse, equitable, and inclusive future forward.
I am always available to talk about the future of this incredible school and look forward to what the days ahead will bring.
