Dwight-Englewood’s Strategic Planning process is a comprehensive and collaborative undertaking aimed at crafting a robust and thoughtful roadmap, building upon our current strengths and guiding us to the best possible future for our school, both near- and long-term.  
With help and input from across our community – faculty from all three divisions, parents, students, administrators, staff, trustees, and alumni – the Strategic Planning Steering Committee has identified five main strategic areas of focus, or pillars: Purpose, Program, People, Place and Philanthropy. 
The draft initiatives generated by the design teams for each pillar will inform the final Strategic Plan, which we envision to be a clear action plan for amplifying our cherished values, boosting the excellence of our programs, fostering well-being for all, deepening our commitment to DEIB, and further knitting us together in community. 
“As a community of learners, Dwight-Englewood School strives to foster in each student a passion for life-long learning.  We seek excellence, honor integrity, and embrace diversity in order to develop the skills, values, and courage to meet the challenges of a changing world and make it better.”
