Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy

We are an inclusive community on a mission to inspire unbounded curiosity and independent thought in every one of our students.

SCH MISSION STATEMENT

SCH's Aspirations for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging (DEIB)

We believe these aspirations set a high bar, and we acknowledge there remains work to be done in many areas. We put forth these aspirations so that our efforts towards greater diversity, equity, and inclusion have clear direction and result in meaningful change.

SCH Board of Trustees


OUR FOUR PILLARS OF ACTION

1.

Creating a platform for discourse with current parents within the community via three scheduled and themed parent forums.

2.

Forming a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee comprised of board members, alumni, faculty, and parents to consider and recommend practices and policy across all aspects of SCH; the committee will continue to meet monthly.

3.

Hiring a workforce at SCH that better represents the diversity of the student body.

4.

Training our faculty and staff in DEI, rethinking curriculum, and analyzing the lens through which we teach.
