Unlocking Potential: Branksome Hall’s 2023-24 Strategy Report

We are delighted to release Branksome Hall’s 2023–24 Strategy Report, outlining the school’s progress across our six strategic priorities over this past year. Principal Karen Jurjevich shared the report with the community, saying, “I hope you share my sense of pride as we reflect on the impact metrics and stories that show in tangible ways how Branksome Hall is a catalyst – keeping students at the centre through increased personalization of academic pathways, investment in employee growth, deepened well-being and university counselling support, an ambitious innovation agenda, intentional action to enhance diversity, equity and inclusion, and thriving local and global partnerships.”
Community members are also invited to visit our new website, which outlines the school’s strategic priorities and progress and will serve as a home for Branksome’s strategic plans and vision going forward.

Every day, Branksome educators, counsellors, social workers, coaches, administrators and support staff help students unlock their potential. It is also thanks to the deep commitment and valuable insights of our incredible community of parents, alums, volunteers and supporters, that Branksome is able to prepare students to lead and thrive in an unpredictable future. 

The new report follows on the Strategy Refresh 2022–25, which was first shared with the community in January 2023. The Strategy Refresh builds on the strengths honed over the school’s 121-year history and serves as a roadmap for the next three to five years, positioning Branksome to thrive in today’s exciting and complex context. 

Principal Jurjevich closed her announcement of the new report by sharing, “As my time as Principal comes to an end after 26 very full and memorable years, and we look forward to welcoming Branksome’s 8th Principal, Grace McCallum this July, I have never been more confident in the bright future of this school and its remarkable students.”

We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.

Setting the new standard for girls' education everywhere takes collective action. From all of us.
