Country Day has long been committed to supporting and advancing
an equitable and diverse campus, with the goal of fostering an
environment in which all members feel appreciated, respected,
safe, and prepared to be successful within and beyond our
community. Our school is dedicated to creating a campus that
is reflective and inclusive of the broader Sacramento region, one
of the nation’s most diverse communities.
At Country Day we celebrate difference — of race, culture,
religion, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background,
points of view, among others — and we seek to provide a school
environment that recognizes difference as our strength and of
value to us all. Our guiding principle is that
authentic learning thrives when we all discover, create, and
collaborate within a diverse and supportive community.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Statement
Country Day believes that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive
environment enhances one’s sense of belonging, is essential to
academic excellence, and prepares students to collaborate in a
dynamic, complex, and interconnected world.
Country Day aspires for all members of our community – students,
parents, caregivers, faculty, staff, alumni/ae, and Trustees – to
foster an environment in which everyone feels safe, known, seen,
heard, and valued. We work with our students to develop the
skills and habits of mind necessary to communicate and act across
differences in order to lead in modern society.
In support of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, all
members of the Country Day community commit to:
- Share our unique stories and be open to others
- Listen with humility and engage respectfully
- Learn from different perspectives and experiences
- Examine our biases and endeavor to overcome them
- Take risks as they engage in courageous conversations
- Demonstrate empathy and compassion for those around us
