Envisioning Pike's Future
A Pike education ignites a lifelong journey of discovery.
Imagine for a moment, your child’s journey to success. What does this journey look like in a rapidly changing world?
At The Pike School, we are actively examining this question. Over the past year, through a distinctive process of exploration that included a community-wide survey, specialized learning teams, and a strategic design committee, we redefined our core values and developed a new Mission and Vision that will guide us in navigating and shaping a future in which our students will thrive.
We recognize the iterative nature of change and embrace it through a lens of opportunity and optimism. As our strategy unfolds in the coming years, we will continue to wonder what’s worth learning, and how we might enable this learning. It is with the continuous investigation of these questions that The Pike School strives to be an exemplar of transformational education and a center for purposeful learning, leadership, and impact.

It is essential for our families to feel connected to our community as both contributors and learners, and to understand they are an integral part of what drives us.

Our Secondary School process provides guidance for students, their families, and advisors, as they work together to create an individual path for success that matches each student’s unique talents and aligns with the key attributes, competencies, and dispositions defining the Portrait of a Pike Graduate. Through investigation of current educational trends, we will ensure our process communicates clear metrics for success and helps students understand how they will learn and where they will thrive. This process will prove its resilience and remain relevant as the educational landscape continues to shift and evolve.
