Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion
St. Patrick's EDI Mission Statement
St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School’s determination to promote equity and justice, diversity, and inclusion proceeds from two fundamental ideas. First, that every individual has infinite value as a child of God and, second, that we come to understand the world more fully through others.
