The Grosse Pointe Academy was recently selected to be part of the inaugural cohort of NAIS Lab Schools. Hosted by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the initiative will help drive innovation in independent schools around the country.
As a key contributor to the project, leaders from The Grosse Pointe Academy will work with four other schools to develop and test strategic planning frameworks and processes. “Opportunities and challenges exist for every school,” notes NAIS president Donna Orem. “The Lab Schools Project will help independent schools identify how they can thrive in a changing landscape. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We selected schools willing to be bold in the creation and implementation of strategy.”
“We are honored to be invited to join this exciting initiative and believe that our school and students will benefit greatly from the project’s strategic outcomes,” said Head of School Tommy Adams. “We are eager to contribute to the national effort to secure the future of independent schools.”
In addition to The Grosse Pointe Academy, four other schools will participate in the first cohort of the NAIS Lab Schools: Allendale Columbia School (New York), The Darrow School (New York), Grace Episcopal Day School (Maryland), and Providence Country Day School (Rhode Island).
