Our school's commitment to the goal of anti-racism is made in earnest and is stated in our 2020 Strategic Vision. Building a need-blind, anti-racist, genuinely inclusive school begins with assessing the school climate, professional development, and curriculum, scrutinizing the demographics of our community, evaluating current practices and past initiatives, and setting tangible, corrective goals. Read on to learn more about where we are.
Strategic Vision at Work
We will empower our students to lead the world toward a just and compassionate future. We will bring together a multiplicity of voices and deepen our ability to honor that of God in all by engaging our whole community in the task of building a need-blind, anti-racist, genuinely inclusive school.
We will cultivate positive racial identity, allyship, and cultural competency, raise awareness of unconscious bias, mitigate the detrimental effects of privilege, and work towards dismantling structural racism.
We will dramatically increase diversity in each division in terms of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and other facets of personal identity.
We will engage all Westonians in the work of creating a supportive environment for students, especially those from marginalized identity groups.
We will maximize access to Westtown by expanding our ability to enroll students without regard to their financial capacity through robust philanthropy and auxiliary revenue.
