Collectively, we are working to build a community where all members are respected, feel safe, and have a sense of belonging.

"Episcopal schools ground their commitments to diversity, inclusion, justice and equity in the words of the Baptismal Covenant, and our promise as Christians to "seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself," and "to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.


That pledge to respect the dignity of every human being includes how we differ from one another, as well as how we share a common humanity and reflect the image of God. It serves as a guide to our daily need to act with compassion, love and integrity, as well as to name and challenge behaviors that promote exclusion, intolerance, and mistrust."

Christ Church Day School is a member of the National Association of Episcopal Schools and fully supports their Principal Qualities which distinguish a school as Episcopal and their Statement on Inclusion and Episcopal Identity.

Christ Church Day School is also an accredited institution through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and is aligned with the WASC Equity Statement.


Equity is the condition where fairness and faithfulness thrive, and all members of the community are respected for their inherent dignity as human beings and capacity to contribute to the building up of the common life. (Psalm 33:5)


The courageous and continual attention to and advocacy on behalf of those most vulnerable in the community. (Proverbs 31:8-9)


Dignity speaks to the inherent worth of all human beings, what human beings strive to be seen as possessing, and the primary lens through which we view all human beings. (Gal. 3:28)


Beyond the sheer presence of a diverse group of people, inclusion is the process by which members of the community honor one another, welcome many voices, and work toward the ongoing broadening of the community’s horizons. (Romans 15:7)


The intentional development of school communities where people of different backgrounds and points of view come together as a body. Diversity is both a source of strength and a primary means of enhancing the intellectual, social, spiritual and moral life of the school. (Rev. 7:9-10)

The National Association of Episcopal Schools has complied a collection of resources that can guide discussions about diversity, equity, inclusion, and respect of all people.
