Palmer Trinity School embraces the Episcopal Church's commitment to diversity, inclusion, justice and equity. As such, we strive to respect the dignity of every human being, embracing how we differ from one another while also affirming our shared humanity.
In embracing our diversity, we step away from blind judgment and deepen our understanding of the world around us. In emphasizing our common humanity, we remind ourselves that shared purpose is essential for building community. Together, these tenets push us to act with patience, compassion, and integrity as we develop our students into well-informed, thinking, empathetic global citizens who will lead with love.
Truly exploring our individual and shared humanity requires a culture of inclusion, where all members of our community feel safe, seen, and respected regarding all aspects of their identity. Such aspects include (but are not limited to) race, ethnicity, religion, culture, national origin, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, ability, and socioeconomic status.
Developing a culture of inclusion requires oversight and intentionality, which is why the school has appointed a DEI Team of coordinators to build and manage curricula, awareness campaigns, affinity groups, and resources in response to the ever-changing needs of our dynamic community. The current scope of these initiatives is detailed below. In addition, we invite students and parents to reach out to our DEI coordinators to ask for additional support and articulate emerging needs.
