Strategic Plan Update: July 2017

  • Strategic Plan Update: July 2017

    1. Expand Our Long-Term Sustainability
    2. Maximize non-tuition income of the school by leveraging our facilities and programs to appropriate audiences.

    III. Optimize our Physical Plant and Assets

    1. Ensure Access to growing fine arts and athletic programs to include but not limited to music, drama, physical, digital, extra and co-curricular fine arts and athletic opportunities. 

    Under the leadership of the Director of After-School Activities and Summer Programs and through enhanced community promotion and the use of technology (online camp registration), the summer, after school programs, and holiday care programs have grown over the past two years in the number of Woodland and non-Woodland students that participate in Etc. (the after school programs), B.L.A.S.T. (the summer program), and holiday camp. Making programs more accessible to non-Woodland students have allowed our summer programming to not only grow in the number of students that participate but also expand the breadth of programs that we can offer. It is not uncommon to have 40%-50% of non-Woodland students on campus during summer camps.

    This past year we were able to offer 10 different Etc. programs that served over two hundred students in the following Etc. programs: tech tots, piano, maker time, martial arts, homework room, Hip Hop, guitar, chess, ballet, and Woodland Art Academy.

     

    For the 2017-2018 school year, the middle school schedule has also been adjusted to provide seventh and eighth-grade students more exposure and opportunity in the arts.

     

    This increasing non-tuition revenue and growing fine arts and athletic programs have most importantly ensured our students have multiple avenues and opportunities to explore their interests in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and athletic programs.
