Dear Laurence Community, 

On the heels of celebrating Laurence School’s 70th Anniversary, we are excited to present Laurence School’s 2023 –2028 Strategic Plan. Approved by our Board of Trustees, the new Strategic Plan will guide Laurence over the next five years with a clear, mission-aligned vision for our future. It is the result of a collaborative process among the Board, administration, faculty, and parents, inspired by the students who fill our campus with joy every day. The Strategic Plan reflects our commitment to continually evolving our programs, developing our campus, and strengthening our community. 

Since publishing our previous Strategic Plan in 2018, Laurence created a Diversity, Equity, Anti-Racism, and Inclusion (DEAI) Strategic Action Plan in 2020-2021 and a Technology Strategic Plan. In light of this, Laurence’s 2023-2028 Strategic Plan incorporates the relevant strands of the DEAI Strategic Action Plan and the Technology Strategic Plan. It adds important new priorities and insights gained in recent years. Priorities embedded in the new Strategic Plan are aligned with Laurence’s most recent accreditation report from the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS).  

The 2023-2028 Strategic Plan represents the best of our collective thinking as we pursue the brightest possible future for Laurence. As the school’s stewards, we will pursue the plan with our most determined, diligent, and collaborative efforts. We welcome all of your active participation as together we execute the plan to make the vision for the future of Laurence School our new reality.
