The Avery Coonley School (ACS) has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates to conduct strategic planning during the 2017-18 academic year. ACS will join the ISA client family with several other recent Chicagoland area ISA clients, including Francis Parker School, Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School, Lake Forest Academy, and Baker Demonstration School, among others. Our work will commence in late spring and continue throughout the following academic year.
The Avery Coonley School is an independent school whose mission is to provide a learning environment that is appropriate both for academically bright and gifted children who are motivated to learn and have demonstrated the potential for the scholastic achievement necessary to succeed in a challenging academic program, in order that they may become positive, productive, and respectful members of society. Founded in 1906, The Avery Coonley School is an independent, coeducational day school serving 378 academically bright and gifted students age 3 through Group 8. The School is located on an 11 acre campus in Downers Grove, Illinois, a suburb approximately 25 miles west of Chicago. The student body represents 40 different communities from surrounding suburbs.
We welcome The Avery Coonley School to the Ian Symmonds & Associates client family. And, with family roots in Illinois for our president, Ian (a long-time Cub fan), and with so many previous clients in the area, we also look forward to getting back to Chicago!
