Strategic Plan 2022-2027

Deeply held Quaker values inform how we approach teaching and learning at AFS. Our students are encouraged to have bold convictions, to be curious about the world they live in and to develop creative solutions to problems. And yet, our identity as an authentic Quaker institution cannot remain static as the world around us grows, evolves and transforms. Learn about the actions we are taking to live out our School’s mission in the next five years, as we proudly introduce our Strategic Plan for 2022-2027 — Envisioning the Fourth Century of Friends Education.

In the 2022-2023 school year, we will be sharing more information on how to become engaged in making this plan come to life. In the meantime, thank you for your part in shaping the vision that will guide us as we form new strategies, projects and goals for the future as it unfolds before us. Read about a few of the ways that we see this vision already taking shape in our School in this Special Edition of Oak Leaves Magazine.
