Honoring Our Similarities and Differences

We believe that honoring diversity means embracing both the visible and invisible differences among individuals including, but not limited to, race, culture, religion, socioeconomic status, perspectives, physical ability, education, family composition, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation. Diversity and inclusion are essential to a well-rounded education that promotes intellectual curiosity, academic excellence and moral growth. Trinity is a place where people of all faiths, traditions and backgrounds are welcomed, and where every person's dignity is respected.

diversity and inclusion

We offer our students an opportunity to know a better world — one where love and understanding set the tone; where they can create personal connections that go beyond stereotypes; and where they can explore, listen to and learn from others in a safe and nurturing environment. By challenging students in this way, we help them grow into leaders who think critically, collaborate effectively and value others.

 

"By exploring social and moral issues, students begin to evaluate critically their own beliefs and biases. They learn from the perspectives and experiences of others, grapple with complexity, and develop the skills to become contributing members of a global and pluralistic society."
– Principles of Good Practice for Equity and Justice in Episcopal Schools, National Association of Episcopal Schools

Cultural Celebrations 

Throughout the year, Trinity hosts special celebrations for different cultures. These events can range from guest speakers in Chapel to community-wide events for students, faculty and families. No matter the scope, our cultural celebrations are designed to educate, inspire and unite.

Special Guest Speakers

We invite special guests to share their faith stories so we may learn how we are much more alike than different and how we can work together for the greater good. All are welcome to attend and participate. Past guests have been community leaders of Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism. We want our students to hear, learn and understand different voices so they can become thoughtful community leaders who successfully navigate the world beyond Trinity.

Ubuntu

Each January, Trinity celebrates the South African philosophy of Ubuntu: “I am because we are.” It is a month-long, multi-disciplinary celebration focusing on peace, love, diversity, justice, equity, kindness, community and service. The South African Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu said a person with Ubuntu is welcoming, hospitable, warm and generous, and willing to share. Such people are open and available to others, willing to be vulnerable, affirming of others, do not feel threatened that others are able and good, for they have a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that they belong in a greater whole.

Strategic Plan for Diversity & Inclusion 

Trinity Episcopal School is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community, and we see this commitment as central to our Episcopal Identity. Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan intentionally guides the decisions we make toward achieving this goal.
