    Post #23: Strategic Vision #5: Cultivating Curious Minds

    Last spring. I started a series of blog posts to elaborate on the five strategic vision statements in our 2020-2023 Strategic Growth Plan. Each of these vision statements describes what Augusta Prep will be by the end of 2023--as our motto is “To be, rather than to seem.” In my last blog post, I described strategic vision statement number four--how we plan to cultivate great graduates by improving extracurricular programs, partnerships, internships, and exchanges. Today, I would like to share updates on strategic vision statement number five which focuses on developing empathetic problem solvers who can tackle the greatest challenges of the present and the future.

    We have an obligation to prepare our graduates for their future, not our past. We want our graduates prepared for college and beyond–for a global marketplace and a future driven by ever-evolving technologies. Our graduates will face the challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution, with emerging technologies in big data, artificial intelligence, robotics, and additive manufacturing. So, vision statement number five states: “Augusta Prep will cultivate curious learners who can contribute individually and collaboratively towards developing innovative solutions to real world problems.”

    Post #22: Strategic Vision #4: Cultivating Great Graduates (February 25, 2022)

    Last spring I started a series of blog posts to elaborate on the five strategic vision statements in our 2020-2023 Strategic Growth Plan. Each of these vision statements describes what Augusta Prep will be by the end of 2023--as our motto is “To be, rather than to seem.” In my last blog post, I described strategic vision statement number three--how we plan to cultivate an even more diverse, inclusive, and safe community and so better attend to the social, emotional, and physical safety of our students. Today I would like to share updates on strategic vision statement number four which focuses on how we more fully live our mission to develop intellect, talents, and character to produce well-rounded graduates and thus ensure Augusta Prep is seen as the premier school in the area.
