Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

Statement of Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

St. Andrew's upholds each person's dignity, identity, and belonging. This commitment is foundational to our diverse, inclusive, and equitable community and essential to exceptional teaching, learning, and service.  
St. Andrew’s has a steadfast commitment to diversity, equity, and belonging 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 belonging 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.
