Rooted in Miami Country Day School's mission are our core values of honor, respect, wisdom, and compassion. It is with respect that we value the rights and opinions of others and embrace the diversity of our learning institution.
Miami Country Day is dedicated to increasing the diversity of our school community to accurately reflect the world in which we live. We widely define diversity to include age, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender, language, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and socio-economic status. This commitment allows us to create an environment that is welcoming and respectful for our students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds.
We view the goal of maintaining diversity and inclusion as directly related to creating the highest quality programs for an independent school. Our programs are dedicated to the enrichment of our students and that enrichment is amplified when those with varying experiences and points of view share their knowledge and interpretations with one another.
Diversity increases the breadth and depth of a person's education and is crucial to a full understanding of our society. A commitment to diversity and inclusion is recognition of the past and a promise to the future – something owed to students of all backgrounds.
