External trends that affect Hillfield Strathallan College

As part of the process, we will examine the key trends that may influence our future.  Here are some examples of the trends that may inform our discussions:

  • Rapidly-evolving digital environment - Advances in technology enable new ways to learn, collaborate and communicate.
  • Emerging research on education drives new approaches to how children learn and the skills they will need to excel in the 21st century.
  • Globalism is driving the need for a new level of international awareness and new skills to adapt and be global citizens.
  • Growing diversity of the Hamilton area: The make-up of our broader community is changing. Many independent schools are considering how to be more inclusive of the diversity of the broader community.
  • Growing pressures on families - including the time crunch for parents, competing demands for precious time, busy schedules for students created by outside demands as well as school-related demands.
  • Changing and uncertain economic conditions have an impact on tuition affordability and the increased importance of building a culture of philanthropy.
  • Growing interest in partnerships that provide new ways to connect locally and globally to enhance education.
  • These are just some of the trends we will consider as we plan for the next five years. We would like to hear your views on the trends that you believe may impact the future of the College.
