At Cathedral School for Boys, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to the educational experience. We are committed to fostering and supporting a community that embraces a wide variety of beliefs and perspectives. We welcome all people in the many ways they may identify, including by race, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, family composition, physical ability, religion, culture, and socioeconomic background.
In order for students to thrive, they must experience an enduring state of belonging and feel that their ideas and actions matter. Nurturing a truly equitable and joyful community takes commitment and courage. Our Episcopal values of inclusion, compassion, and service provide us with the foundation to help our students continuously challenge, reexamine, and give voice to their own beliefs with a deep respect for others and a sense of wonder.
Within our community, we strive for:
- Acceptance with empathy: Inside and outside the classroom, our boys learn the importance of working to understand what others are feeling.
- Accountability with affection: In a supportive and understanding environment, we hold our boys to high expectations and ask them to take responsibility for their choices.
- Connectedness with recognition: Our boys learn to work collaboratively and to appreciate and acknowledge each other’s individual talents.
We strive for diversity, equity, and inclusion so that every member of our community has the opportunity to participate fully in school life. We value as part of our boys’ educational experience the varying perspectives and learning styles, the richness of culture, the sharing of tradition, and the working through and resolution of conflict that comes from being a caring community. We are each responsible for creating a community where everyone belongs.
