Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Seattle are committed to diversity in our school communities because it is a moral and intellectual necessity. As a system of schools, we believe every human being possesses the dignity of being made in God’s image, and every culture reflects God’s grandeur. Diversity enriches our social interactions and intellectual lives by exposing all of us to approaches and frames of reference that challenge our unexamined assumptions.

By working together, we come to appreciate how the gifts of each individual enrich the lives of every individual and the community as a whole. We believe that promoting diversity and inclusion among students, faculty, and staff is an essential part of the Catholic mission to live the teachings of Jesus.
