Our Strategic Plan is divided into six domains where we want to maintain excellence or see growth. We track our progress with data that relates our goals through Greatness Indicators. As an added layer of progress reporting, we track our plan’s health globally as well as within each of the six plan domains. Look for our Plan Health Indicator within each domain.

"Mr. Worden is fully committed to focused curriculum and instruction, while he is blazing the trail with respect to innovation within the classroom," says Principal Hubbard. He has taken on and is excelling at his delivery of AP Literature and contributes to the school in so many other ways. From website work, to film production, to incredible pictures of all that goes on at ACHS, Mr. Worden is a significant contributor to the culture, climate, and celebration of what it means to be a Sequoit."

"I love being a part of the ACHS community," says Worden. "Working with 9th graders and AP seniors, not to mention wandering around with a camera capturing weird little moments, gives me the chance to see so many different sides of the school, and I couldn't be happier."
