At Shore Country Day School, we endeavor to develop responsible, well-rounded students who find strength in diversity, appreciate differences, and recognize the need for mutual respect among all individuals. We pursue diversity in the composition of our student body, faculty, staff, administration, and trustees. It is our belief this richness should extend to all aspects of life within our community.
In striving to provide students an intellectually challenging climate, we commit to examining preconceptions, considering a range of views, and exploring multiple ways of thinking. We believe that one’s experience is shaped by many factors including race, religion, gender identity, age, class, ethnicity, family structure, ability, and sexual orientation. The experience and understanding of such diversity foster students’ critical thinking, self-confidence, and personal integrity, preparing them for participation in a closely connected global community. The advancement of diversity at Shore Country Day School strengthens our educational mission, promotes a healthy and vibrant community, and honors the humanity and potential of each of its members.
