Strategic Plan 2020

Porter-Gaud will embark on a new strategic plan this year through a collaborative and transparent process that includes representation from all of our constituencies; Board members, parents, students, faculty and staff, and community members. This five to ten-year plan is designed to take the Porter-Gaud experience to its next level of educational excellence.


To build a forward-looking, student-centered strategic plan guided by our mission and supported by a commitment to do all that we can to make the Porter-Gaud experience ever more meaningful, accessible, and distinctive.

  • Involve our entire community. We will start with everyone in the room,
  • Be highly transparent to all school stakeholders,
  • Inspire us to think boldly and bravely about our future, and
  • Utilize the guidance and expertise of Grant Lichtman, an internationally recognized thought leader in the K-12 education arena.
