Dana Hall is a private school for girls in New England facing a crisis in its mission. As social norms move away from same-sex education, school enrollment figures decline and deficits become the norm. At the same time, the modern vision of girls’ education requires even greater investments in science and sports at a time when Dana Hall’s resources are less than ever.

Using the story of school principal Blair Jenkins, this case examines the difficult mission and funding decisions faced by many nonprofits.
