Randolph School

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Seeking Truth, Building Character, Nurturing All.

Randolph School is a member institution of the National Association of Independent Schools and is actively in pursuit of the goal to be a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive community in which every person is an equal, contributing member.

Our Commitment to Inclusivity

Randolph School is committed to fostering an inclusive, safe, and supportive learning environment that honors the dignity of all members of our community. The talents, differences, and perspectives of all members of our school family are both welcomed and respected. We believe that student growth and development is enriched by a school community where the presence of diverse perspectives and life experiences is vital in seeking truth, building respect and empathy, strengthening cultural competencies, and preparing our students to lead as global citizens.
