CONVENT & STUART HALL STRATEGIC PLAN

A R E A S O F I M PA C T

2017-2020

I.

OUR VISION Convent & Stuart Hall in 2020: An education of mind, Heart and body that aims at realizing the best in students so they each may live with grace and intellect, preparing them to shape their present and future and to be a positive force, locally and globally, in their rapidly changing world.

Dear Community, At Convent & Stuart Hall, we undertake the serious responsibility of preparing young people for their future, while ensuring they experience each day with joy, curiosity and enthusiasm. The school’s strategic thinking and planning centers on aiming at the best for each student — academically, personally and in community. Our graduates are balanced individuals who value hard work and have a capacity for self-examination and interiority. The vision we hold for Convent & Stuart Hall students in 2020 reflects their diverse world in the context of a new reality comprised of vast avenues of information and developments in neuroscience and cognition. In response, we have devised an immersive environment — inspired by compassionate, talented adults and kind, intelligent peers — where learning is inspired through a pedagogy of space, where curriculum transcends textbooks and the use of technology augments intelligence. Our students will be well equipped to think independently and discern the credibility and value of myriad sources of information available to them. They will act according to an internal set of values and beliefs, living in the world with courage, grace and intellect. Sincerely, Dr. Ann Marie Krejcarek President Convent & Stuart Hall
