In partnership and conversation with one another across divisions and departments, faculty members helped create the aspirational vision shared below. The process helped surface and affirm important values, skills, and ideals that fully articulate the habits of "character, scholarship, and accomplishment" we seek to develop in our students.
Our “Portrait of a Graduate” vision connects overtly to Hackley’s mission, our core values, our unique school culture, and our program: an emphasis on relationships, embracing a diversity of perspectives, accomplishment defined by serving a greater public purpose rather than by material gains, and the development of enduring academic skills.
Creating this document was an essential first step in the generation of our next strategic plan. By working together to think about the attributes and habits developed by a Hackley education, we created an important touchstone for the community, something we will use for years to come as we shape the broad strategic future of the school and in our daily work with students.
