During a weekend retreat in October 2011, Trustees, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, past parents, and friends of the School gathered and discussed the future needs of Holy Child School at Rosemont. From that retreat, four strategic goals were identified (see categories at right for details):
- Preserve and Strengthen the School's Culture and Values
- Educate for the 21st Century
- Financial Sustainability
- Amplify Our Voice
Following the identification of these goals, committees - including many of those that attended a fall retreat - gathered throughout the school year to develop action steps to address each goal. At the May 2012 Board of Trustees meeting, the 2012 Strategic Plan was approved.Historically, Strategic Plans have a life cycle of about 10 years. However, because of the rapidly changing world and educational climate that all schools face, this Strategic Plan was expected to guide us for four to six years. This plan was developed in a flexible format that both meets the current needs of Holy Child School at Rosemont as well as anticipates others that might arise. To ensure this Strategic Plan remained on target, the Board of Trustees monitors its progress throughout the years.
In all, the Strategic Plan wasn't just a commitment; it also was a challenge to be a better institution and position Holy Child School at Rosemont to bring about the best possible outcomes for our children. We can be satisfied with nothing less.The School is extremely grateful for the countless hours and expertise that the many members of our community contributed to help the School establish this comprehensive course of action. The Board of Trustees and administration cannot thank those members of our community enough, as they enabled this plan to come to fruition.
