Strategic Plan


In 2015, Saint Saviour Catholic Academy (SSCA) was one of four academies selected to participate in a strategic planning process facilitated by Catholic Education Consultants (CEC). The Strategic Planning Committee was led by
Co-Chairs Lenae Guarna, SSCA Board Chair, and Maura Lorenzen, SSCA Former Principal, and supported by Brother Ralph Darmento, FSC, representing the Diocese of Brooklyn, as well as George A. Milot, Ed.D. and Sr. Mary Anne Doyle, CSJ, Ph.D., representing CEC.

SSCA Board members served as task force co-chairs for five domains, listed below, consisting of six to eight members that represented a broad spectrum of people including SSCA administration, faculty, parents, alumni, and local business professionals, each bringing a specific expertise to the work.

  1. Catholic Identity
  2. Academic Excellence
  3. Enrollment and Marketing
  4. Finance
  5. Governance and Leadership

In 2018, the Board of SSCA embarked on the creation of a new strategic plan for the three years 2019-2022, updating the previous five domains but also adding two additional domains for Development and Building and Grounds. This document gives some background to the methodology of the original three-year action plan and further explains our current methodology moving forward.

The SSCA Strategic Planning Committee approved a three-year action plan accompanying the Board-approved Strategic Plan and submitted it for approval to the Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, on May 30, 2015. The Diocese approved the Strategic Plan in July 2015. After completing the first strategic plan, the SSCA Board of Directors completed a second five-year strategic plan in March 2019, and submitted it to Dr. Chadzutko in April. Attached are the goals and objectives of the SSCA Strategic Plan.
