Crossroads School in Santa Monica, California, launched their strategic plan this week. A result of nearly 18 months of work by the school, including the strategic planning steering committee, faculty, staff, and board, the new plan is an exciting vision for the school. An ISA client for many years, we completed the strategic plan in partnership with the school over the past 18 months.

Backed by a philosophy that values developing our students’ full human potential—as learners, artists, critical thinkers and engaged community members—Crossroads has nurtured thousands of students since its inception in 1971 and empowered them to effect positive change locally, nationally and internationally.

Yet the world our students will inherit is constantly evolving. As a school, it is imperative that we identify and strengthen our institutional priorities so that we may continue to fulfill the promise of our philosophy well into the future. To this end, Crossroads has developed a new strategic plan, which will guide the School over the next five to seven years.

The plan articulates the School’s priorities and objectives identified during the recent self-study as well as the strategic planning work overseen by the research and planning firm Ian Symmonds & Associates, with the participation of individuals from all across our incredible community. Serving as our North Star, the strategic plan will guide Crossroads in our efforts to improve, to grow and to guarantee the School’s long-term sustainability.

The School’s plans to enhance the student experience, expand our presence in Los Angeles and beyond and ensure our future success reflect our steadfast dedication to our founding commitments: to academic excellence; to the arts; to the greater community; to the development of a student population of social, economic and racial diversity; and to the development of each student’s physical well-being and full human potential.

— Bob Riddle, Head of School, Crossroads School

We are very excited about the future of this extraordinary beacon of progressive learning in Southern California, the West Coast, and the nation. You can download the entire plan here or visit the strategic plan launch page to learn more.
