Strategic Thinking 2012-2016
In January 2012, Bancroft’s Board of Trustees convened a two-day strategic planning retreat, attended by over 30 members of the Board, administration, and invited guests from around the country. The goal of the exercise, explains Board President Kevan Gibson, was to facilitate innovative thinking, debate priorities, and create a strategic document—Vision 2016—that would identify the key initiatives upon which Bancroft should focus during the next three to five years.
As Headmaster Scott Reisinger explained at the time, “This isn’t about rethinking what Bancroft is all about. It’s about taking stock of our strengths and thinking about ways to be more effective, serve more needs, and live our ideals more fully.”
The group reached consensus on five key initiatives:
- Learning Laboratory Method / Project-Based Learning
- Bancroft Academic Center for Excellence (BACE)
- Hope Graham Program at Bancroft School
- Global Studies for the 21st Century
- Advancing Goodness in Our Changing World
Vision 2016 outlines the five strategic initiatives, which will guide the School’s allocation of time, finances, and personnel in the coming years.
