Educational Outcomes

The Strategic Plan Steering Committee identified the following outcomes as defining a best-in-class education for the 21st Century. The Committee developed this list after extensive research into trends shaping the future of secondary education and after extensive interviews with St. Mark’s faculty, graduates, parents, and leaders in a variety of fields. The Board of Trustees committed the School to orienting its educational program around these outcomes when it ratified the Strategic Plan in 2011.
