In August 2008, Jackson Prep began a lengthy and deliberate strategic planning initiative in an effort to update our five-year plan. The process included extensive data collection and analysis, including market segmentation and demographic research, enrollment and marketing audit, competition analysis, community leader survey, parent Web survey and numerous focus groups with students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff. Armed with quantitative and qualitative data, the 18-member Strategic Planning Steering Committee began its work, completing the Strategic Plan in the fall of 2009. Prep Board members and faculty and staff are excited about the challenges that lie ahead with the implementation of the five-year Strategic Plan. Please join us in support of this ambitious undertaking.
