Venture Further Together Greenwood College School's new Strategic Plan

Letter from Principal and Board Chair

Greenwood’s story began when our founders imagined a school that was different. Rather than asking students to follow a narrow, traditional course of education, this new school would help students to grow both as learners and as people, to find energy in both success and challenge, and to choose the paths that would bring them fulfillment.

Twenty years later, Greenwood has accomplished more than we thought possible in 2002. We are on the forefront of education, incorporating the latest research and technology into the classroom. We provide unparalleled support to students through our Adviser program and purposeful relationship building. We are a place where students are challenged and inspired, and where they can find and pursue their passions.

Now, it’s time to write the next chapter in the school’s story. Venture Further Together, our strategic plan for 2021-2026, will help us do just that. Developed with input from all members of our community, it is authentic to the school we set out to be, reflects all we have achieved since our founding, and charts an ambitious and exciting future.

Greenwood will be a recognized leader in providing an inclusive, customized, engaging and character-building experience that prepares our students to make a positive difference in the world.

The enhancements to the Greenwood experience will be attained through the five imperatives outlined in this document, our roadmap for achieving this vision. This will require bold action across most everything we do: from the program we deliver to how we innovate, to how we hire, to how we fund our growth and aspirations. What will remain constant is the mission and the heart of Greenwood.

Venture Further Together recognizes what we at Greenwood have always known: doing things the way they have always been done is not an option. Nor is standing still. We must move forward to stay on the forefront of education -- and we need your help to do it. Engagement from our students, staff, parents, alumni and past parents will be critical in achieving our strategic pillars, and we look forward to sharing those opportunities with you in the months and years ahead.

Today’s Greenwood experience was made possible by our community -- by everyone who has been a part of our story. With your support, we can make the next chapter the best one yet.
