Building upon the school's strong history and guiding principles, the Strategic Plan provides a blueprint for the future as we ensure our position as one of the few unquestionably outstanding independent schools in the country. We intend to achieve this vision through our unwavering commitment to attract and retain an exemplary faculty; to intellectually engage all Pingry faculty and students; to develop leaders within a well-rounded and honorable student body; and to modernize and create exceptional facilities that reflect our commitment to strong programs in academics, athletics, and the arts.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the role our trustees, alumni, parents, faculty, students, and staff played in helping to formulate this plan. We asked every member of the Pingry community to participate in the planning process, and were pleased to have received more than 500 replies and critical suggestions.
Once more, we are grateful for your continued support and interest in Pingry and for your commitment to sustaining the vision that Dr. John Francis Pingry espoused when he founded the school in 1861. Today, more than 150 years later, we continue to strive to maintain Dr. Pingry's legacy through our dedication to the core principles he cherished most: a dedication to providing an outstanding educational experience in an environment that emphasizes leadership, honor and character, and a commitment to respect and service to others.
We look forward to future collaboration with you as we continue the exciting work of making all areas of this Strategic Plan come to fruition.
