Diversity and Inclusion

Our Diversity Statement

As a school founded on the values of Wisdom, Honor and Service, Parish Episcopal School believes that embracing our inclusive community facilitates our social, spiritual, and intellectual growth, and drives excellence in teaching and learning. We empower our students to be authentic and prepare them to lead by demonstrating knowledge of and respect for the rich variety of people and points of view that exist in our complex global society.

Creating a Culture of Belonging

A place to be your authentic self
Individuals will feel they belong
The commitment to inclusivity will cascade throughout the institution and steep with the Parish culture
Recognize and persist through the potential discomfort associated with discussions of identity, equity and justice
Respect the unique experiences and perspectives of others
Parish is a warm, inclusive community where each student is allowed to blossom into a unique, passionate leader prepared to succeed in our complex world. It really takes a village and Parish has been the right village for our family!
– Beth Gerwe, Parent of Alumnus and Board of Trustee
