The Ravenscroft community, guided by our legacy of excellence, nurtures individual potential and prepares students to thrive in a complex and interdependent world.


Through the implementation of our Strategic Plan, Ravenscroft will build upon its status as the premier comprehensive, independent college preparatory school in our community and will become a preeminent academic institution in the Southeast.

The key elements of our vision include a commitment to the following:


Provide a rich and appropriately challenging curriculum taught with passion by a nurturing and knowledgeable faculty.


Enhance our contribution to become a more valued member of our community and increase our diversity to better reflect that of our area.


Promote a working and learning environment that expects and celebrates mutual respect, personal responsibility, ethical leadership, and a sense of humor that restores.


Inspire our School community to value the educational journey as much as the outcome.


Nourish meaningful and supportive relationships among students, teachers, staff, alumni, parents, and in the greater community.


Our values ground our School, programs, and initiatives in the most important aspects of the Ravenscroft community - people and their collective growth. They reflect our legacy of excellence with an inspired commitment to the future.
