DIVERSITY STATEMENT

ICL Academy values an inclusive and diverse community. Our valuable and diverse student body, faculty team, and partners have enabled us to develop our community and celebrate diversity in all its forms. We understand that our School’s community is enriched by its members’ varying backgrounds, including those of age, cultural tradition, ethnicity, gender, nationality, physical ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic position.

We seek to enroll families who will work in partnership with the School to embrace the challenging ― yet rewarding ― situations borne from diversity; furthermore, we will support and advocate for our community, recognizing that different perspectives are valued. We recognize that our community includes our families, faculty, staff, and alumni ― all of whom contribute to the tapestry of ICL Academy.

ICL Academy is committed to a strong sense of global understanding. We recognize that diversity as a concept continues to evolve, and that we ― as a community ― will evolve with it. Our dedication to this effort shall be ongoing.

Our Core Values, the “6 Ps”

Our students understand that education transcends geographical boundaries ― their learning experiences are designed to help them become citizens of the world. The program, with its emphasis on inquiry and the learning through the study of global contexts, provides a rich framework for this to occur.

ICL Academy values the importance of language acquisition while still honoring the students’ development of their mother tongues. By reducing barriers created by language and broadening our understanding of cultures inherent in the languages our students study, our community members can better participate in a more global dialogue. At ICL Academy, the study of language is designed to be one of inclusiveness.

As we are a network of global communities, our students and teachers have countless opportunities to collaborate on curricular experiences and service opportunities. To be exposed to the cultures and insights of others ― and to have the opportunity to share one’s own culture ― should not be undervalued. Our students understand that it is possible for experiences to be shared with, as well as be unique to, our international counterparts. We strongly advocate the mission of, “encouraging students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.” It is through the refinement of empathy and international understanding that our students will further develop a more global perspective.
