Dear Cornelia Connelly School Community,

Guided by the educational philosophy of Cornelia Connelly and true commitment to “meet the wants of the age,” we are pleased to present the 2014 – 2019 Cornelia Connelly School Strategic Plan.  

Resulting from the dedication and thoughtful deliberation among the whole Connelly community during the last year, our plan refects our confdence in our future.  We build on our past successes with a plan that emboldens our faculty and administration to be even more innovative, collaborative and nimble.  More importantly, our plan demands that we look beyond our campus and reach out to the global community to help our students learn and develop their moral, intellectual and practical capacities to contribute to the greater society long after their days at Connelly.

We realize that our vision starts by embracing the great responsibility to implement our ambitious goals.  Designated committees have begun developing tangible, measurable action steps that address specifed strategic initiatives.  Changes, from the facilities to the activities in which our students will engage, will be observable.  Moreover, we will measure our progress and communicate it to the greater community on a regular basis.

On behalf of the Steering Committee, we thank our trustees, administrators, faculty, students, parents, alumnae and friends for their eforts and thoughtful deliberations as we shape our vision and strategies for the future.  We look forward to this exciting educational journey.
