Employer Description
 
<h1 style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 2.5rem; margin-bottom: 1em; font-family: Raleway, Arial, sans-serif; font-weight: 200; line-height: 1.1; color: #191919; text-align: center;">Mission</h1>

We inspire young people of talent and promise to develop clear values, a desire for wisdom, and an appreciation for all endeavors which broaden the mind and enlighten the spirit.

<h1 style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 2.5rem; margin-bottom: 1em; font-family: Raleway, Arial, sans-serif; font-weight: 200; line-height: 1.1; color: #191919;">

All children embark on their own educational journeys brimming with potential, informed by nature, and nurtured through personal experience. We believe each journey is better and more nourishing if, during these formative years, it takes place within a deeply-connected and diverse community. Such a community provides children a supportive, physically- and emotionally-safe environment where they become confident learners who take risks and actively engage in their world. Green Hedges is this community.

In 1942, Frances and Kenton Kilmer, children of international artists, founded Green Hedges School to provide a learning environment that emphasizes excellence in the core subjects while reflecting their passion for the arts and languages and their appreciation for cultural and religious diversity. Building on their vision, we teach a robust liberal arts program from the earliest ages–providing context, encouraging connections, and inspiring creativity. Our approach creates a strong foundation and allows students to achieve a deeper and broader understanding within all disciplines.

The intimate size of our community enables each child to be known, valued, and guided as an individual. Each student actively engages in all aspects of the school experience, including collaborating with and mentoring students across grade levels. Our graduates leave Green Hedges well prepared to thoughtfully and confidently meet new challenges with the advantages of an excellent education and a certainty in their sense of self.

Diversity Mission Statement
 
<h5 align="center" style="box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Raleway, Arial, sans-serif; font-weight: 500; line-height: 1.3; color: #44943e; margin-bottom: 1em; font-size: 1rem;">Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement</h5>

Since its founding, Green Hedges School has always believed that each child’s journey is better and more nourished if, during these formative years, it takes place within a deeply-connected and diverse community. Such a community provides children a supportive, physically and emotionally safe environment where they become confident learners who take risks and actively engage in their world. Green Hedges is this community.

Community

Green Hedges School commits to diversity, equity, and inclusivity among its students, families, employees, trustees, and alumni. A broadly diverse community fosters empathy, enriches teaching and learning, and promotes intellectual excellence and strong character. We hold everyone in our school accountable for respecting the multitude of identities and perspectives and for promoting a safe and supportive school environment.

We are a diverse community committed to a unified vision – to inspire students to achieve their dreams and reach beyond themselves to make a difference in the world. We believe that in order to achieve this vision, our community must reflect the diversity of the greater world, including but not limited to diversity in socioeconomic status, family structure, race, ethnicity, religion, belief systems, learning abilities, gender, and sexual orientation.

Action

We invite our community to work together to create a climate of mutual respect. We lean into the sometimes complex and challenging conversations about inclusivity because we believe that the growth of a community and learner is continual, and striking a careful balance between individuality and community can be difficult work. We are committed to this ongoing and ever-changing process.
