Diversity at St. Andrew's

Diversity Statement

St. Andrew’s has a steadfast commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion among its students, families, employees, and trustees. This imperative is rooted in the school’s Episcopal identity and its mission to know and inspire each child. A broadly diverse community fosters empathy, strengthens teaching and learning, and promotes academic excellence.

We value and respect all differences, including but not limited to age, ability, ethnicity, family structure, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status. To build and sustain a diverse community, the school proactively addresses equity and inclusion in its policies, programs, and practices. We hold everyone in our school accountable for respecting the multitude of human identities and perspectives and for promoting a safe and supportive school environment.

DEI Resources

Our Diversity Team has compiled a list of DEI Resources to provide guidance for parent(s)/guardian(s) with an overview of racial inequity, bias, and identity development and its impact on learning and society. The list includes resources for each division, as well as for all audiences.
