Diversity, Inclusion, and Global Education at FCDS

Fairfield Country Day School is committed to teaching the value of diversity.  We strive to accomplish this by being an inclusive community; embracing and celebrating all members of our school family and the greater community. Inclusivity pertains to all areas of diversity; race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical differences, socio-economic background, and abilities.  In addition, across all grade levels and all disciplines, we inculcate values of respect, integrity, and social responsibility.  

Our school community purposefully addresses multiculturalism with the goals of preparing boys to be responsible global citizens, to challenge all forms of discrimination in school and society, and to instill attitudes that value and reflect multiculturalism.

Members of the Diversity, Inclusion and Golbal Education Committee are - Molly Hemenway, Noreen Franklin, Maggie Burchill, Rick Runkel, Pen Vineyard

FCDS Diversity In Action

DIVE is an FCDS student club that explores the many facets of identity. The name is an acronym derived from the phrase “diversity includes the values of everyone,” a guiding principle of our school’s diversity and inclusivity efforts. The group meets monthly to explore issues of identity in our school, town, and country. Participation in the club is optional, but forty 7th-9th graders have opted to join this year. Many of them participate in the Student Diversity Leadership Conference, an annual forum in which they connect with independent school students from around Connecticut.
