Strategic Plan 2020

Strategic Plan 2020

There’s Only One Gulliver

Unparalleled

Our mission — every single day — is to create a learning, growing environment second to none. To that end, we’re excited to share the strategic framework that will keep Gulliver moving forward as we meet the needs of an ever-increasing diverse and dynamic world. The development of the strategic plan began last year and included broad input and feedback from Gulliver students, families, faculty, and staff. This plan serves as a roadmap, guiding Gulliver towards our centennial celebration in 2026 and beyond. And, with this plan, we will continue to open wide the world for our students and cultivate tomorrow’s leaders, inventors, and creators for years to come.
