"St. Albans is committed to building a community in which the worth of every member is affirmed and the diverse talents and perspectives of each are nurtured."
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement
St. Albans is committed to building a community in which the worth of every member is affirmed and the diverse talents and perspectives of each are nurtured. Our Episcopal tradition calls us “to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.” We honor these ideals as an Episcopal community by embracing diversity, promoting inclusion, and striving for equity, justice, and belonging in all that we do. We welcome persons of all faiths and those who do not practice a faith to our caring, inclusive community that draws its strength from the belief that every person possesses inherent value and is worthy of love, care, and respect.
The intellectual, social, and moral development of each of us requires engagement with a wide array of ideas and lived experiences, especially those that differ from our own. Such open exploration can only occur in a community where every member feels seen, valued, and loved. Building such a community requires that we develop the tools to speak authentically, listen carefully, and empathize profoundly. This in turn requires continual individual and collective self-reflection and growth as we celebrate our differences, recognize our privileges, guard against our prejudices, and honestly share our perspectives. As we recruit members of our community, nurture our culture and norms, deliver our curriculum, and carry out the daily work of teaching and learning, we commit ourselves to continual improvement.
Pursuing these commitments wholeheartedly is essential to developing fully the habits of mind, body, and spirit that allow us to be the best versions of ourselves and to embrace with joy our pursuit of a more just and virtuous St. Albans, and a more just and virtuous society.
Located in Washington D.C., St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
