Flintridge Prep’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
In June 2020, when Prep launched its diversity, equity, and inclusion initiative, our Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, and administration pledged to listen to our community, understand and analyze our needs, and align our actions with the values we cherish.
As foundational statements, our mission, honor code, and philosophy exhort us to develop the community values necessary for an engaged and responsible life, a life that honors each person’s individuality and uniqueness. It is our responsibility as educators to nurture the desire and the skills to positively impact the world, to engage generously, honestly, kindly, and, above all, with deep respect for others. Our school philosophy states, “we believe in the essential value of diversity.” We must live this belief through real action and daily effort.
This year, the Board of Trustees and school leadership are engaging in a comprehensive strategic planning process that will generate an expanded vision for Prep’s future growth. Commitment to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive Prep community will be an integral part of this planning process. We expect to see a completed strategic design document in fall 2022.
