Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At St. Paul’s, our core values and our inclusive, global worldview guide us in everything we do. Our students learn to appreciate a variety of backgrounds and beliefs. Our global perspective and founding principles steer how we teach, resulting in lasting lessons on humanity and good citizenship.
We believe in inclusiveness. We support diversity as an integral aspect of educational excellence that enriches the experiences of all. We respect and celebrate diversity in race, religion, ethnicity, socio-economic circumstances, sexual orientation, gender, and ability.
Our Inclusive Community Faculty Committee meets throughout the year to focus on our cultural competency framework, community events, professional development opportunities, and more.
“Our community is guided by our Episcopal roots, core to which is the belief that every child is a child of God and that trust, understanding, and mutual respect lie at the heart of all that we do. St. Paul’s is committed to creating a supportive learning environment where all individuals are valued for their unique contributions. We strongly believe that a diverse and inclusive environment is the best learning environment for our students and prepares them to live, work, and thrive in an increasingly global and multicultural community.”
The Reverend Daniel Meck, Head Chaplain & Director of Spiritual Life
