In the Classroom and Beyond

Topics of diversity, inclusion, and equity are daily lessons woven into our curriculum in each division. Teachers use inclusive language and create diverse libraries of literary selections to reflect and validate the experiences of every student and family. 

Each year, faculty thoughtfully assess and reframe projects through the lens of equity and inclusion. Field trips, special visitors, and Chapel presentations support this mission.

When discussing issues of race, identity and social justice, it is easy to intellectualize these matters. SEED puts faces and experiences to theories and concepts, making them much more concrete. I have learned so much from my experiences in SEED, and I am grateful to be at a school that cares about it as much as I do.” Faculty SEED Participant
