Diversity Statement

Kentucky Country Day School affirms diversity as a core community value. We will champion social justice and challenge injustice wherever we find it—in the classroom, on campus and in the world. We seek to embrace difference by living our motto—Citizen, Scholar, Steward—within the context of an educational community in which we are privileged to learn and teach.

As Citizens . . .

We will be proactive in thought, word, and deed to nurture a community in which differences are embraced and appreciated. We will promote acceptance, inclusion, and affirmation as fundamental principles of social interaction. We will learn from and teach each other to be decent human beings, prepared for the larger world in which we live, work, and serve.

As Scholars . . .

We will invite the free flow of ideas, perspectives, and experiences to gain understanding. With that understanding, we will encourage positive engagement across all lines of difference. As scholars, we will adopt curricula that incorporate an ongoing examination of difference and create programs to explore the various social meanings of difference and to affirm its essential place in our educational community.

As Stewards . . .

We seek to cultivate respect for and understanding of difference both at KCD and in the greater community. To that end, we wish to promote and connect learning through service in solidarity with local and global communities on a long-term basis.
