Our Vision

 

The Lives of Consequence campaign addresses a fundamental question: How can a distinguished school evolve to address its current needs and achieve its future ambitions—all while remaining true to its roots?
 
More than halfway through our second century, St. Mark’s is in the process of implementing far-reaching, positive changes to our campus and our curriculum that both position our School for success in the 21st century and also rearm the unique values of a St. Mark’s education. Lives of Consequence—the most ambitious campaign in our School’s history—reflects a collective commitment to ensure that St. Mark’s endures for future generations. We are challenging ourselves to reimagine and redefine what constitutes a superlative residential education program and what constitutes a truly impactful living and learning community.
 
Our campaign priorities identify the resources we need to meet the goals articulated in our ambitious Strategic Plan, St. Mark’s 2020. A cornerstone of the Lives of Consequence campaign, the Residential Life Initiative represents a further evolution of the thinking that oriented our Strategic Plan through a critical investment in our residential community that underscores our ongoing commitment to enhance our model of a world-class secondary education by honoring the concept of “a school under one roof.” In addition, strengthening our endowment significantly will enable us to continue to offer competitive compensation and professional development opportunities for our extraordinary faculty and to ensure that a St. Mark’s education remains accessible to promising students from diverse backgrounds, regardless of their means. With your generous support, St. Mark’s will continue to thrive as a place where students develop the crucial skills that drive meaningful success: creativity, critical thinking, leadership, courage, and a sense of ethical integrity.

I have been deeply impressed—and moved—by the remarkable generosity our community has displayed during the initial phase of this campaign, which has taken us more than halfway to our goal. At this pivotal moment, St. Mark’s alumni, families, and friends throughout the nation and across the globe have the power to help create a bright and sustainable future for our School. Thank you for your affirmation of all that St. Mark’s has been and will be in the future.
