Strong in Every Way
 Elevating a community's human capital through awareness, attentiveness to opportunities, and partnerships.

Strong in Every Way
Resilient young people grow into able and contributing
adult citizens who are truly life-ready. 
Zionsville Community Schools seeks to foster specific strengths through
focus in three domains of non-cognitive skill and asset development.

Strong in Every Way is an aspirational human capital campaign conceived in mid-2016 to ensure optimum non-cognitive skills growth, grit, resilience and depth of understanding for all ZCS students. If Strong in Every Way (SIEW) were a (construction/fiscal) capital campaign, we would be building something new, or amassing the resources to do so—you know, aspiring to construct the future of a campus somewhere. This squares with SIEW in campaign concepts, but the lifelong differences for our youth are profound. Three domains define Strong in Every Way: 1) Developing Webs of Support, 2) Developing Assets and Resources, and 3) Developing Cultural Understandings.  Unlike the case with construction capital campaigns, our blueprints are malleable. No one can pre-determine the square footage of a young person’s dreams. People and systems of success and excellence are not a place or destination. But builders all are we. Let’s be attentive to one and to all. Let’s let no child in this place be anchorless, fallen then trampled while unnoticed or ostracized such that negative defining moments limit potential in the making. Choosing the people, ideas, and ways in which we will be collectively purposeful is daunting. It requires a movement. It requires a campaign. A human capital campaign. You can help a child be strong in every way. We all can!
