Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
In June 2021 the Country Day Board of Trustees unanimously adopted the following statement:
At Cincinnati Country Day School, we believe a diverse community is among our institution's greatest strengths. We commit to delivering an educational experience in which every student can learn, grow, and be fully prepared to succeed in life. We welcome, respect, and value all members of our community. We promote curiosity over complacency, acceptance over alienation, kindness over cruelty, and generosity over selfishness. We commit to providing an environment that is free from harassment, bullying, racism, and discrimination in all forms.
EDI is essential to everything we do at Country Day and is a reflection of our five character virtues: compassion, courage, integrity, responsibility, and respect. EDI helps equip our students with the ability to think critically, understand different perspectives, and engage in respectful dialogue—skills that are fundamental to effecting positive change in the world.
We strive to ensure we are providing a school environment where every student, 18 months to 18 years, is known and nurtured. We foster an environment that sustains an inclusive, diverse community of individuals who learn from and about one another.
Below you will find examples of this sentiment in action in our schools. Aligned with our five character virtues - compassion, courage, integrity, responsibility, and respect - as well as our strategic plan and our accreditation requirements, we provide an environment that values an internationally diverse community and promotes respect, understanding, and inclusion.
We look forward to all we must learn and all we are learning together, and to the opportunities for growth. We stand together.
