As we move into this next decade, Vistamar School is embarking on a process to create a new strategic plan. The strategic plan will be a road map for our ongoing work as a school that empowers students and prepares them to contribute and excel in higher education and in life. In keeping with our mission, we will continue to challenge the status quo and maintain our innovative approach -- not reinvent the school, but grow and innovate for the future. Our commitment to best practices in education remains the cornerstone of Vistamar’s mission.
To develop this strategic plan, we will be engaging our entire community in the process. To that end, we will be seeking input from all our constituencies, including alumni and alumni parents, current parents, faculty and staff. These perspectives are critical to the process to ensure that our entire community has an opportunity to help us identify ways the school can and should improve in the future.
The project is being chaired by Board of Trustees member, Carla Buck, and Head of School, Chris Bright. It will be guided by a strategic planning committee (SPC) whose job it is to consider the input we receive from all sources and recommend a set of strategic priorities to the Board for adoption as our next Strategic Plan.
Members of the SPC include:
Co-Chair: Chris Bright, Head of School
Co-Chair: Carla Buck, Board Member and parent of alumni
Princess Baltimore, Board Trustee & Current Parent
Mickey Blaine, Theatre Director, Film
Adele Cadres, Executive Assistant to the Head of School
Darlene Fountaine, Board Trustee & parent of alumni

Stu MacFarlane, Board Trustee & parent of alumni
Sandy Montalvo, parent of current student
Sarah Older-Aguilar, Chair, Humanities Dept
Sydney Reiner, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, & parent of alumni

We launched this effort in late 2021 and will be sharing insights and finalizing the plan during 2022.
