DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION, & ACCESSIBILITY BELIEF STATEMENT:
At The College School, we recognize that diverse experiences, identities, and perspectives are fundamental to academic excellence and preparation for life in a global society. We honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals and are committed to building a foundation of respect, collaboration, equity, inclusion, and justice for our students, faculty, staff, and community. We strive to partner with our students and stakeholders in promoting freedom from oppression for all through thoughts, words, and actions.
What’s New on our DEIA Journey
How to Be an Antiracist Book Study
Faculty and Staff at The College School engaged in a multi-week book study of Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist, a text that examines the many forms of racism while providing tangible strategies to root it out. Learn more about the book here.
In the 2022-2023 school year, we established our first Gender/Sexuality Alliance – a place where young folks with questions and emerging identities can not only learn about themselves but also how to support others in the LGBTQIA+ community.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Bitmoji Classroom
Every child has a voice, and we work everyday to make sure that voice is heard and respected.
Our equity and inclusion mission statement serves as a touchstone to all of our efforts in curriculum, service, social-emotional learning, admissions, student and family support, and interaction with the larger St. Louis community. We look forward to partnering with you!
