Multicultural Life

Over the last ten years, multiculturalism on our campus and other independent schools is an all-important priority. As a result, student, and faculty and staff groups form to generate support of their respective needs and increase awareness throughout campus. As advocates for a multicultural school community we take action to inspire discourse and serve as a voice for all individuals. We endeavor to develop a deeper sense of community and cultivate the diverse aspects of Santa Fe Prep.

Commitment to Diversity

Diversity at Santa Fe Prep means a commitment to reflect our area’s local, national, and international mix.  This pledge to reflect our community’s diversity enhances our academic quality and strengthens our mission as a college preparatory school.  At Prep, diversity includes people who possess exceptionally strong talents as well as consuming and passionate interests in a wide range of areas.

A Safe Place for All: In addition, Santa Fe Prep embraces a variety of families and individuals.  In order for students to learn and grow within our classrooms and beyond, our community must be a safe and secure environment for all.  For this reason, we expect all members of our community to treat others with respect and kindness regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation, or socio-economic background.

Student Diversity Leadership at Prep

Each year, four Santa Fe Prep students are selected to attend the Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC) sponsored by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). The SDLC, part of the People of Color Conference (POCC) sponsored by NAIS, is a multiracial, multicultural gathering of student leaders in grades 9–12 from across the U.S. The Conference focuses on developing leadership skills through self-reflecting, forming allies, and building community.
