STRATEGIC PLAN UPDATE
Over the last four years, the Fort Worth Country Day community has been engaged in a wide-ranging planning effort. Through surveys, conversations with alumni and parents, and through the focused effort of Country Day’s faculty, staff and Board of Trustees, we have examined the independent school landscape, assessed our strengths as an institution, and sought to identify and capitalize on opportunities to enhance the quality of the education we offer to our students and their families. The results of those efforts are represented in a comprehensive strategic plan that will guide Fort Worth Country Day for the next decade and beyond.
Head of School Eric Lombardi frequently describes FWCD as a family. He recognizes that from the School’s earliest days, when Founding Headmaster Peter Schwartz H’98 spoke to each student each day, the relationships among students and faculty members have been at the heart of Country Day’s ethos. This defining quality of our school has endured.
Our responsibility, like that of successive generations before us, is to address the challenges and opportunities of the present and the future while remaining true to this and other qualities that distinguish Fort Worth Country Day. In that tradition, this strategic plan focuses the time-honored purpose of the School community for the next decade.
We hope that you will share our excitement about the possibilities for Fort Worth Country Day’s future. The time is now to work together to ensure that FWCD’s future is as bright as its past. I hope you will take the time to consider the progress we have made. Though our tasks are not complete, they are well underway!
With warm regards,
