Private schools in the Philippines are grappling with unprecedented challenges such as financial pressures due to COVID-19 pandemic and the changing nature of education. This overview evaluates how strategic planning can address these factors and ensure that private education is viable and up to standard. With a wide range of sources, the document points out main dilemmas including managing stakeholder interests, balancing finance with learning objectives, and responding to population shifts or curriculum reforms among others. Consequently, it explores achievements regarding strategic planning like increased student performances, higher enrollments, improved financial healthiness for institutions, better satisfaction among teachers apart from innovative school cultures. In addition, there is a discussion about recommended procedures for conducting situational analyses while simultaneously involving all stakeholders within an organization; developing clear visions and missions; and monitoring progress. Taken together through theme analysis, this paper has valuable implications for knowledge on strategic planning research in private educational institutions thereby setting directions that should be followed by future studies or practices as well in this area. Lastly, It argues that ultimately strategic planning is what allows private schools to deal with complex issues effectively leading them towards attaining excellence as well as sustainability.
