Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Porter-Gaud is committed to creating an inclusive and equitable community in which all individuals can participate in and contribute to the life of the school, regardless of race, gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, or any other aspect of their identity. We actively work to gain a deeper understanding of difference and how we honor it in our daily lives at school.

At Porter-Gaud, we embrace diverse cultures, backgrounds, ideas, and differences that enliven, broaden, and deepen who we are.
