The Mount Vernon School, through MV Ventures – a strategy and innovation consulting company of the School – was recently named an inaugural recipient of the Jeffrey Shields Award for Innovation Excellence in School Business Operations.

Mount Vernon has been recognized as a school that has demonstrated innovation in school business operations through approaches, programs, and practices that may serve as a model throughout our independent school community.

Schools honored with this award have “shaken up” their organizations and disrupted the status quo by implementing new ideas and transforming organizational culture. Capitalizing on strengths to build alternative revenue, MV Ventures was formed to connect Mount Vernon teachers – as consultants – with other educators around the world, even now forming partnerships with Vietnam and China. All revenue from MV Ventures is then reinvested in the School, directly benefiting Mount Vernon families and students.

Congratulations Mount Vernon School and MV Ventures on this honor, as selected by the NBOA (National Business Officers Association) Awards Selection Committee.
