Strategic Plan

2014-18 Strategic Plan

As the Seton Keough community looks to the future, it recognizes the need to maintain its commitment to excellence through strategic planning. During the 2013-2104 school year, the School Board surveyed the school’s constituents to gather input on key issues that affect the ongoing life of the school. The results identified challenges and opportunities for the school to chart a course for its future. The following five areas were identified and strategies put into place to accomplish our goal to build a stronger, sustainable and successful Seton Keough High School.

Seton Keough’s strategic plan is reviewed every year and updated every four years once approved by the Board.
