Strategic Plan
2016

For more than 130 years, Breck School has been preparing students to make the world a better place. Rooted in Episcopal values and in the spirit of perpetual learning, our progressive approach to education pushes us to review our past, to reflect on our present and to reimagine our future. The following strategic plan provides an outline for moving us forward, beginning with declarations of who we are and what we know to be true.

We are a community of lifelong learners and teachers, innovators and scholars, artists and athletes, servant leaders and independent thinkers boldly engaged in transforming lives and the world beyond our doors.

  • We know that learning is not a spectator sport.
  • We know that strong leaders serve the common good.
  • We know that self-reflection sets the stage for action.
  • We know that diversity and multiple perspectives enrich us all.
  • We know that success happens when we have a safe place to fail.
  • We know that thoughtful questions lead to deeper understanding.
