From preschool for 3-year-olds to college prep, our transformative education invites children to explore and create in an energizing and welcoming environment. Here, at our innovative independent school campus, we promise to inspire in our students the habit of lifelong learning.

Diversity Mission Statement

Columbus Academy believes that diversity, inclusion, equity and justice are essential to the excellence of our community, culture and curriculum. We recognize that the pursuit of this excellence requires thoughtful, deliberate and sustained action and that this effort is critical to our educational mission.

Community: We value diversity in all of its dimensions including but not limited to gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, physical abilities, family composition and socio-economic status. We seek to reflect multiple perspectives, backgrounds and interests in all facets of our community. We recognize that students who are exposed to and embrace diversity are better prepared to engage in a pluralistic world.

Culture and Climate: We strive to be an inclusive community in which each individual feels safe, respected and valued. In building a community that values similarities and differences among its constituents, we seek to embody in our actions and in our relations with one another the principles of equity and justice as well as Columbus Academy’s core values of honesty, respect, compassion, responsibility and fairness.

Curriculum: We believe that exposure to multiple – and even sometimes competing – points of view best equips students to explore, understand and apply complex concepts, building the basis for a rigorous education. By weaving diversity into the fabric of our curriculum, we equip our students with the interpersonal and critical thinking skills that are essential to success in the complex, multicultural world in which we live.

Columbus Academy adheres to the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Principles of Good Practice for Equity and Justice.
