Strategic Plan 2011-12
The Strategic Plan focuses on six areas, listed below, that are critical to success in attaining the vision. Ambitious multiyear goals in each area are supported by strategic steps toward their achievement, expressed as annual strategic goals. A flexible financial projection ensures the school’s financial stability and the excellence of Curtis’s educational program as the plan progresses.
Implementation began with the 2008–09 school year. In the first two years, Curtis achieved significant fund-raising successes despite a deeply challenging economic environment. Most of the annual strategic goals were met, while a few initiatives requiring significant new funding were deferred.
In the third and fourth years of the plan's implementation, Curtis continued to focus on the core areas, but engaged in strategic improvisation to respond appropriately to changes in the cultural landscape, the technological environment, and the needs of students. We adopted new initiatives, consistent with our goals, when these provided unique opportunities for our students. In 2011–12 the opening of Lenfest Hall, the first major addition to the Curtis campus in decades, resonated through every core area of the plan.
The four years of the plan to date represent and unprecedented period of innovation at Curtis. The many accomplishments of 2011–12 are summarized here.
