As educators, we must instruct and empower children to challenge assumptions and ask questions in order to become responsible citizens in a diverse world. At The Cathedral School, we believe that the recognition and appreciation of differences in race, socioeconomic status, cultural or religious tradition, age, gender, ability, and sexual orientation enhance the individual's sense of identity and broaden respect for others. Through curriculum and informal school experiences, children at The Cathedral School come to understand the inherent value of all people.
The Cathedral School is committed to the following:
- Multicultural curricula and programs that support underrepresented voices, and thus enhance the experience of all students
- Admission and hiring efforts to further diversity
- A school culture that fosters respect for all individuals and enables community members to question biases and express opinions
- Continual review of diversity issues among all members of the school community through ongoing meetings, discussions, and professional development
