GAZING THROUGH ARCHWAYS This issue of Archways focuses on the importance of collaboration to the educational experience. Collaboration is often thought of in terms of partners working toward a mutual benefit. But St. Andrew’s thinks of a truly successful collaboration as extending beyond those partners immediately involved to benefit multiple people, partners, and communities. In 2014, St. Andrew’s announced the launch of the Institute for Learning and Teaching, an initiative that will focus on collaborations with other schools and organizations to enhance education. Through the work of the Institute, St. Andrew’s will serve as an educational resource to the larger community, working with different organizations with a shared interest in Mississippi’s children and Mississippi’s future, sharing information and resources, and collectively addressing the challenges and opportunities ahead. In this issue, we explore a few of the many facets of collaboration that are taking place on and off campus and that will be brought together in this new institute. Collaboration on and off campus has long been a part of the St. Andrew’s Episcopal School culture. With an array of exciting collaborative programs already in place and the formation of this new Institute for Learning and Teaching, St. Andrew’s is poised to enhance learning and teaching within our school and larger communities.
