Maclay School in Tallahassee, FL has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates for strategic planning and strategy development. We will commence our work in the summer 2020. We are delighted to welcome Maclay to our client community.

Maclay School develops PreK-12 students into unstoppable learners and leaders who are inspired to make an impact, determined to fulfill their potential, and driven to take control of their futures.

History: Maclay School is an independent, non-sectarian college preparatory school dedicated to providing a liberal arts education and enabling each student to develop their inherent ability to the fullest extent with a balance of discipline and freedom. 

Mission: Maclay School was founded in 1968 by a group of parents who wished to provide their children with educational resources that would enable each student to develop to the fullest- academically, morally, emotionally, and physically. The school was named in honor of Alfred Barmore Maclay, Jr., a World War II veteran who died of polio in 1953. His mother, Mrs. Alfred B. Maclay, Sr., was a benefactor and loyal friend of the school. Over the years, family members, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Mettler,  generously donated the land upon which the school now sits. During Maclay’s first year, a nine-member faculty taught grades 1-8. Each year following, one grade level was added until the first class graduated in 1972. Our Kindergarten opened in 1975, and Pre-K began in 1989. Today, Maclay has a student body of about 1,000 students and 100 faculty members. At the end of our 50th year in 2018, our 3000th graduate walked across the commencement stage.
