Alcott College Prep's Strategic Planning Steering Committee is proud to present ACP's new 5-year strategic plan! We began our strategy development process in July 2012. Our goal was to identify the needs and requirements of our community and build a long-term plan to help us align and prioritize our resources to achieve our goals. From our requirements-gathering process, we identified two key strategic priorities to drive our plan:
- growth for all students, and
- re-branding as Alcott College Prep, with a particular focus on re-launching the high school.
Our strategic plan is our long-term guide to putting these two strategic priorities into action. It's an aggressive stake in the ground as to what we'd like to accomplish over the next five years, but it will be constrained by the realities of time and budget. As a result, the plan will necessarily evolve and there will be a need to prioritize based on our two strategic priorities.
Alcott has an amazing track record of success and community support is one of the key drivers of that success. As we strive to help our students reach new heights, we will need our community to rally in support of our goals. Please get involved and help us make this plan a reality for our children.

Let the Giving Begin!!
The Alcott College Prep Pledge Drive is taking place April 1-25. Our goal is to raise $200,000. We are requesting a donation of $1,200 per student or the amount that is right for your family.
The purpose of the Pledge Drive is to make a down payment on the investment required to implement a strong, rigorous curriculum that challenges every Alcott student to achieve academic excellence. Funds collected will be used to pay for curriculum materials, staff development and teaching staff.
Our children are the primary incentive to participate in this year's Pledge Drive. We are offering an additional incentive if you choose to donate the suggested amount of $1,200 per child. Donations paid in full on or before the Trivia night event on April 17, 2013 will be entered into a drawing for an iPad mini that evening. Donations paid in full before the conclusion of the Pledge Drive on April 25, 2013 will be eligible to win one of two additional iPad minis, with winner announced at the coffee talk meeting at 8 am on April 26th at Alcott East.
