About Us

Diversity & Inclusion

St. Joseph’s Prep seeks to produce graduates who are intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice.
In pursuit of this goal, a diverse student body becomes part of the educational experience, better preparing students to work in an increasingly multicultural world, one in which local, national and international challenges are often grounded in cultural, religious or linguistic differences.

As such, St. Joseph’s Prep diversity and inclusion initiatives and programs enhance the life of the school, contributing to an environment that reflects and nurtures the recognition and appreciation of human dignity and multiple perspectives while embracing and celebrating our shared experiences. The Prep is also committed to attracting diverse talent among its colleagues with the motivation to reach out to people of every part of the world as fundamental to the Society of Jesus.

    The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) will be piloting our “For All” initiative that will anchor our DEI efforts in the 2020-21 school year. The purpose of this initiative is to invite community members of St. Joseph’s Preparatory School to investigate their understanding of what it means to be “with and for others” and ask us to reimagine this phrase in our efforts to become “with and for all.”
