Diversity, Equity, and Community
St. John’s Episcopal School was founded in 1961 by St. John’s Episcopal Church as an outreach to the Greater Olney Community. Our educational program seeks to nurture students of character and faith. Our Episcopal heritage compels us to reach out to persons of all faiths and backgrounds, affirming the common elements of our personal, spiritual, and communal growth.
We seek to welcome and embrace people from diverse racial, ethnic, socio-economic, and spiritual backgrounds. We believe that the inclusion of people from diverse backgrounds and perspectives enriches the educational experience of all of our students and is vital to making them good citizens of the world. We are committed to fostering an environment in which issues of diversity are thoughtfully discussed and infused into the vision and direction of the school community.
As a community of faith, we believe in the principles of equity and justice. We celebrate the dignity and worth of all our members. We feel a strong sense of responsibility to one another and to the greater community. As a responsible citizen of the Greater Olney Community, St. John’s Episcopal School strives to reflect this area’s increasing diversity.
