Diversity and Inclusion

Our Diversity & Inclusion Philosophy

(Adopted in 2016-2017)

Foxcroft is a community of “understanding hearts,” where each girl is known and valued as an individual. Our core values of respect, integrity, kindness, and service to others guide us as we learn and live together within a community comprised of students and faculty of different backgrounds from all over the nation and the world.

Central to Foxcroft School's educational mission, we prepare students for success in college and beyond. Our students will live and work in a global community, where cultural competencies, collaboration, empathy, and inclusion are essential skills. In our curriculum, our co-curriculum and our residential community, we encourage all members to pursue knowledge, recognize their personal biases, view a topic from multiple perspectives, and demonstrate respect for diverse viewpoints. We believe that respect requires a willingness in students and faculty to get to know one another — to inquire, to challenge, and to consider thoughtfully new perspectives without judgment.

Our community welcomes and celebrates the diverse histories, experiences, and identities of each of its members, and we believe that shared experiences — formal and informal — within a diverse community foster authentic human relationships and growth. Further, Foxcroft girls are inspired to recognize, reflect upon, and compassionately respond to the diverse needs of others outside of the school community through service learning opportunities.

We support teachers and students in their journey towards greater human understanding and personal development through a variety of courses and topics studied throughout the curriculum and through programming, student organizations, leadership development, and professional development opportunities.
