The Strategic Planning process will ensure that ULS is at the forefront of independent college-preparatory education. ULS parents, alumni, alumni parents, students, faculty and staff all have a voice in this effort.



Visioning Day was a great success with new ideas and insights. Thank you to all the participants who gave their time to work toward an even brighter future for ULS.

Please mark your calendars to join us on Thursday, April 2 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the US Green Room to create initiatives to support the goals and strategic priorities that developed on Visioning Day. Anyone can attend, even if you were unable to join us for Visioning Day. The Board of Trustees is working to approve the vision, goals and strategic priorities for the school, which will be shared with participants before the Initiatives Meeting. Stay tuned for more details and an invitation.

What is Strategic Planning?

The ULS "Soaring Beyond Brilliance" strategic planning process is an initiative to build a vision for the future of our school. The seeds of this effort were planted during the winter 2018 Brilliance Assembly. This day-long workshop was led by Matt Saiia '93, and attended by current and past parents, trustees, alumni, teachers and staff. The group discussed what we cherish most about ULS and identified key themes to enhance. This process dovetails with the completion of a renewed accreditation process through ISACS (Independent Schools Association of the Central States).
