Success Starts Here

Strategic Planning

One of the most important steps a school can undertake is to look carefully to the future and undertake a Strategic Plan. Gateway’s last Strategic Plan was in 2014 and starting last January, we began the exciting process for our newest Strategic Plan that will help to determine Gateway’s growth for the next 5-7 years.

Working with the firm Leadership + Design, a group of faculty, staff, trustees, and parents have been exploring themes and goals that will inform our work for leading Gateway into the future. Much of our work has been shaped by a series of interviews with members of the community this past summer. The committee spoke with approximately 60 parents, trustees, faculty and staff, alums, and former parents to form a clear understanding of what is important to the stakeholders in our community.

While the work is exciting, meaningful, and relevant, it cannot happen without input from the entire community.

On March 7 from 5:30-8:00 p.m., Gateway will host a Community Day Event. We invite families, faculty, staff, and alumni to come together to share thoughts, brainstorm, and think strategically as we share the work that has taken place so far and what still needs to be accomplished before we complete this project in the spring of 2022. Join us for a planning session at which we will use our collective imagination and a design-thinking inspired approach to creatively envision the School’s future.

At the end of this project, Gateway will have a clearly defined Strategic Plan that will guide us for the next 5-7 years. I look forward to many voices joining this important work!
