Salem Academy Selects ISA

Salem Academy in Winston-Salem, North Carolina has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates for research and planning services.  Our work will commence immediately and continue into the spring and early summer.

Since 1772, Salem Academy in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has focused solely on educating young women. Their Moravian founders believed that a first-class education could make a profound impact on a young woman's life, and that belief lives on today as a hallmark of a Salem Academy education.  Small class settings, college-level facilities, and a blend of classic and modern teaching methods give students the tools to master every subject. The liberal arts and sciences curriculum challenges and inspires, building the foundation students need to excel at the nation's top colleges and universities.  Salem's faculty serves an important role in students' lives. As mentors, champions, and advisors, they ignite brilliance and help students to find and follow their unique talents and passions.

We will initiate our work with Salem Academy immediately and look forward to serving the school in market, region, and state that we know well.  We are excited to welcome Salem Academy to our client community.

Sacramento Country Day School in Sacramento, California, has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates for strategic planning services in the fall 2017.  

For over 50 years, Sacramento Country Day has served as the leading elementary and secondary school for students in the city of Sacramento and throughout the greater metropolitan region.   As Sacramento’s only PK-12th grade independent school, they offer a unique educational option to students and families. The school is driven by a mission and the independent philosophy, and both guide us as we seek to maximize the potential of each of the 500 individual students at Country Day.  One of the school's guiding principles is to engage all students in a lifetime of learning. Country Day does not teach students what to think, but to make sure that each and every student knows how to explore, create, and innovate as they learn how to think. 

We will begin our work some preplanning work this spring and forge into data collection and planning throughout the fall.  We are excited to welcome Sacramento Country Day School to our client community.

The Waterford School Selects ISA

The Waterford School in Utah has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates to conduct strategic planning for the 2017-18 school year.  Our work will commence with research in late spring.  

Founded in 1981 by the non-profit Waterford Institute, the Waterford School was established as a research school to join the great lessons of a classical liberal arts education with the benefits of the latest computer technology. This partnership produced a model that the Waterford Institute has integrated in public schools throughout the country and has thus produced improved educational opportunities for all children. Today, the Waterford School and the Waterford Institute are two separate non-profit organizations, each independently governed by its own board of trustees, yet still enjoy the benefits of ongoing partnership, collaboration and research.

Waterford School provides liberal arts college preparatory education for students in Preschool through Grade 12, serving students from Salt Lake City, Holladay, Sandy, Draper, Park City, Utah County and throughout the Wasatch front.  Founded in 1981, the school instills qualities of independent thought, responsibility, and service as it helps students lay a solid foundation for college and prepares them to lead purposeful and honorable lives. Parents trust Waterford to deliver the finest education based on the richness of its curriculum, the quality of its faculty, the commitment of its students, and the safety of its environment. Using classical ideals for learning and life, Waterford teachers measure their effectiveness by the growth and development of each student.
