With an open mind and dedication for change anything is possible.

In keeping with our theme, “Students of the Present, Voices for the Future,” our student leaders wish to center student voices to kick off the conference. Springside Chestnut Hill Academy’s co-heads of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council and Student Facilitators each delivered a short address in which they shared personal stories and messages that aligned with our theme.
