Matignon 2020

A Strategic Vision for our Future

“To the person who does not know where he wants to go there is no favorable wind.”
— Seneca

With each new generation comes new opportunities to enhance the educational experience for our students and to address areas for growth.  As all at Matignon serve our world as “Christ-bearers” we must fully take advantage of these opportunities and create new visions for our future. Beginning in 2015, talented groups of faculty, staff, and the Board of Trustees came together to do just that. Through countless planning sessions, many strategic discussions, and the analysis of much research, these groups explored and charted a new path for our great school. Matignon2020, our new strategic plan, was the result.

"Over the past 10 years, I've seen many changes here at Matignon and am honored to bring my unique experiences to the Strategic Plan for our school. It is exciting to witness the forward vision here at Matignon, one that will benefit students for years."
--Amanda Vallimont, Theology Department Chair and Coordinator, Strategic Planning





Matignon2020 identifies new directions for Matignon High School, including school-wide directions needed to implement these visions. The plan is broken up into four main focus areas: Academic Excellence, Catholic Identity, Operational Vitality, and Leadership and Governance. It is a living document which challenges all those entrusted with our mission to strive to make our school the best educational institution possible.
