From Goal 1 of the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan - At CCES “we embody our unique Episcopal identity best by promoting a culture of kindness and respect where all people from all backgrounds and religions are accepted and valued”.
A Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
At Christ Church Episcopal School, we are called to live into our Episcopal Identity, which is outlined in the Baptismal Covenant and included in the Book of Common Prayer. The Covenant asks us to “strive for justice and peace among all people, and [to] respect the dignity of every human being.”
Consistent with that calling, we are dedicated to cultivating an inclusive community where all students, faculty, and staff engage others with mutual respect, embrace and honor differences, and build a sense of belonging for all. Through finding our commonalities and honoring others’ backgrounds, perspectives, and talents, the learning experience for our students is enriched and all members of our Cavalier community are enabled to reach their fullest potential.
Statement from the Board of Trustees
As an Episcopal School we are upheld by the Baptismal Covenant which calls us “to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.” CCES’s 2017-2022 Strategic Plan calls the school to live more fully into its Episcopal Identity.
To this end the Board of Trustees tasked the administration to cultivate an inclusive community where all students, faculty, and staff engage others with mutual respect, embrace and honor differences, and build a sense of belonging for all. CCES students will have opportunity and access to reach their fullest potential and will develop the skills necessary to eagerly participate and thrive in an increasingly global world through understanding, respecting, and honoring others with different backgrounds, perspectives, and talents.
