Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
When each member of the Flintridge Prep community feels seen, heard, and valued for who they are and the unique experiences and ideas they bring to our community, they can deeply engage in all aspects of life. This sense of belonging is foundational for all of us to thrive both here at Prep and beyond. Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is not just an “initiative:” it’s a daily commitment to intentionally break down barriers—whether in the curriculum, events, advisory programs, clubs, activities, and admissions processes—so we can all enjoy deeper inquiry, engagement, and connection.
Prep for Life: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
Flintridge Preparatory School inspires future leaders of curiosity, kindness, and courage. Our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is central to educating our students for lives of purpose and contribution, social responsibility, global citizenship, and positive impact on the world.
Flintridge Prep Honor Code: Kind, Honest, Generous, and Respectful
Building from our school values, we seek to constantly grow in our understanding of and appreciation for diverse perspectives, becoming strong contributors and leaders in the pursuit of inclusion and belonging for all. All students benefit from a learning environment that reflects the wide diversity of human experience, challenges our understandings, confronts inequality and injustice, and seeks truth. Such inquiry lies at the heart of the liberal arts tradition embraced at Prep from its inception.
We live our commitment to a diverse, nurturing, and courageous Flintridge Prep by ongoing effort: reflecting on our current practices and programs, inviting feedback regularly and listening deeply, acknowledging failures past and present, and addressing barriers to inclusion and belonging in our school and wider community. Valuing the dignity and uniqueness of each individual is at the heart of our mission to support thriving in adolescence and beyond.
