As we launch into the new year, it's a particularly fitting time to lift up our mission at Ellis, which is to educate girls and young women to become bold, authentic, intellectually vibrant changemakers. I am particularly excited about our focus on growing changemakers, because I firmly believe it is the most unique gift we give our students. It can also be the word in our mission statement that provokes the most questions. What does it mean to be a changemaker? What do we do at Ellis to grow this characteristic in our students?
