Employer Description
 
The Gunston School is an independent, nonsectarian, college preparatory day school (9-12) located in Centreville, MD. Gunston has a deep commitment to the values of academic rigor, nurture, and personalization, and we offer unique programs in global and environmental education. Gunston endeavors to create and sustain an inclusive and equitable community that welcomes individuals from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Gunston draws our student population from six Maryland counties, and Delaware. We also welcome international students from across the globe.  With a generous financial aid budget, we attract a remarkably strong student population. As a school, our emphasis on community is perhaps our greatest strength, and we are deeply proud of the way that we value each child for their diverse skills, talents, and background. Students learn quickly that, with small classes and a relentlessly personalized experience, the opportunities for intellectual inquiry, leadership, service, artistic expression and athletic accomplishment are inexhaustible. Every year, our students recommit themselves to our Responsibilities of the Community and our Commitment to Diversity. In turn, they respond by treating one another with a high degree of respect, tolerance, and kindness. When our graduates enter the world beyond Gunston Road they are ready to succeed and thrive!

We strive to cultivate an understanding and appreciation of diversity that includes, but is not limited to, age, ethnicity, family structure, gender, gender identity, nationality, neurodiversity, physical ability, political perspectives, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. As a school, we are committed to offering extensive, ongoing educational programming and professional development to support the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
