In 2019, the Board of Trustees developed a comprehensive Strategic Plan to guide the future of the Washington School for Girls.
Deliver an innovative and intentional educational program for young girls of color
A truly equitable education not only draws from universal best practices, but also carefully addresses the distinct needs of young girls of color through innovation. Our outstanding academic, enrichment, and support programs must ignite the joyful pursuit of learning for all students.
Elevate student experiences and outcomes by enhancing our use of data to inform instruction and program development, engaging in and promoting research on the education of girls of color, and developing robust enrichment, service, and travel programs for students.
Unify our school on one campus
The environment created for students' learning is an integral part of any academic program - in fact, it might be considered another aspect of teaching. A vibrant, well-designed learning space can invigorate students' senses and awaken their desire to learn.
Pursue a state of the art unified campus environment that supports flexible teaching and learning, strengthens school culture, and fosters sisterhood and leadership among students.
Strengthen our financial foundation to ensure longevity
A tuition-free school requires a commitment to long-term financial planning and a robust fundraising infrastructure. With a strong financial foundation, our future plans will guarantee the resources necessary to provide a WSG education for the next generation of girls.
Build on our legacy of thoughtful donor stewardship, increase our fundraising capacity, and expand our network of support and visibility in the community to support new and existing programming while growing long-term reserves including endowment.
