Shortly after I became Head of The Advent School, a group of dedicated staff and volunteers came together to create a plan for Advent’s future. They were guided by a single question: How can we apply Advent’s mission to further strengthen our standing as a leading progressive elementary school? This plan, which outlines core principles and goals that will guide our School for the next three years and beyond, is Advent’s answer.
Advent’s students are asked to learn with passion, act with courage, and change the world. We believe in that motto and, over the next three years, we will take steps that allow us to do an even better job of living up to these inspiring and aspirational ideals.
Leveraging our strengths—an inclusive community, our urban setting, a talented staff, dedicated volunteers, our thematic curriculum—we seek to make Advent more than the best progressive school in Boston; we will set new standards for elementary education.
I would like to thank the Strategic Plan Committee and many others in the Advent community for their contributions to this plan, and for the thoughtful, collaborative, and dedicated way they went about charting this exciting course forward.
