Inclusive Community

We believe that an Inclusive Community embraces cultural agility, civic action, and a broad definition of human potential. 


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

Seattle Academy nurtures empathetic connections between people with different life experiences. We are committed to recognizing and addressing the causes and effects of bias and discrimination, as well as the historic and ongoing relationship between privilege and power. We strive to see, hear, and value all members of the community and work to build a strong foundation for meaningful dialogue, informed advocacy, and effective action.
