By 2020 Woodstock School will be widely recognised as a leading educational institution in Asia, impacting the world from its Indian Himalayan context. Our diverse student body and talented staff will be drawn from many nations. Our educational approach will be relevant, innovative and inspiring, built upon values which have anchored the school for more than 150 years. We will graduate self-directed and reflective young people with a passion and curiosity for life, equipped for leadership and influence throughout the world. Through highly engaged staff, and with the support of worldwide networks of alumni and partner institutions, Woodstock will become a beacon of excellence in India and beyond – holding out a uniquely effective educational vision of hope and possibility.
Emerging from Woodstock’s 2020 Vision are Four Pillars which serve as the foundation for the future of Woodstock. Unless we accomplish these four projects, nothing else we do will matter. Whether it is re-imagining our learning spaces, creating a place for independent study and mentoring relationships, expanding the scope of student diversity or providing transforming education through community engagement, these initiatives are essential if we are to accomplish the objectives of the 2020 Vision.
