Strategic Plan – Vision for 2020


The Board of Directors of St. Francis Catholic High School lead the Strategic Planning process in Academic Year 2014-2015. An Institutional Assessment report was prepared by the administration to evaluate current programs and identify opportunities for the future. Embedded in the assessment were The National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools (2012, Loyola University Chicago and US Catholic Bishops), which identifies 11 standards for effective Catholic schools. These standards are used to evaluate and support the improvement of Catholic education.

A two-day retreat was held February 20-21, 2015 bringing together the St. Francis community members – alumnae, parents and parents of alumnae, faculty, staff, and students – to solicit their input and feedback. The goal of the retreat was to draft strategic plan goals and preliminary objectives. At the conclusion of the weekend, a survey process provided feedback and input to recommend a final strategic plan to the Board of Directors for adoption in Spring 2015. Below is the Strategic Plan approved by the Board of Directors in May 2015.
