Strategic Plan

All goals and strategies of the Strategic Plan refer directly to our mission “to foster the intellectual, moral, aesthetic, and physical development of young women and men in preparation for college, a lifetime of learning, and active participation in a changing society.”

On April 26th, The Williams School Board of Trustees presented the Five-Year Strategic Plan to the Williams community: 


For the past 18 months, members of The Williams School Board of Trustees, together with the School’s administrative team, have worked with great energy and enthusiasm to develop the 2013-2018 Strategic Plan for Williams.  The result of that work is a forward thinking plan that promotes and continues the evolution of our truly exemplary program while supporting the mission of The Williams School: to prepare our students for college, a lifetime of learning, and active participation in a changing society. We are very excited to present the 2013-2018 Strategic Plan (see PDF file below), at the core of which is the student experience and the fiscal strength of the School.

While continuing our commitment to fostering academic challenge and a passion for learning among our students, we will further our comprehensive program with the reshaping of our advanced courses and the strengthening of educational connections through relationships with local and regional organizations.  Additionally, we are very excited to report that on April 25th, the Board of Trustees voted to add a Sixth Grade beginning in the 2014-15 school year.

To support the faculty, staff, and students in carrying out a sophisticated and challenging program, it is also vital that we maintain and develop our facilities at both Mohegan Avenue and Bloomingdale Road, where the recently purchased land will provide greater opportunities for both athletic participation and experiential learning. Through a comprehensive advancement program, the Board of Trustees will work to identify and prioritize specific capital needs as well as give increased attention to building upon the School’s $5 million endowment in order to ensure our long-term financial stability.

As a result of these and other strategic efforts, The Williams School will be increasingly well known for the quality of its teachers, the distinction and value of its program, the academic, athletic and artistic achievements of its well-rounded student body, and the loyalty of its alumni. We invite you to learn more about The Strategic Plan for Williams and look forward to the opportunity to provide forums for discussing specific aspects of the plan with you. In the meantime, if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact one of us.
