As an all-girls Catholic school sponsored by the Sisters of the Divine Savior, our students, faculty, and staff are called to embrace the dignity and talents of each individual in our school community as well as in our society at large. We strive to build an inclusive campus for our students, the families that support them, and our community of colleagues. We support and develop young women who embrace and respect differences in background and perspective, while being open to appreciating and learning about the wider world.
When we use the word “diversity,” we refer to the myriad of personal experiences, values, perspectives, talents, and worldviews that arise from differences in culture and circumstance. These differences include gender, ethnicity, language, religion, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation. DSHA values diversity among the students we recruit and the staff we hire. We are committed to making a DSHA education an accessible reality to any qualified student.
DSHA promotes and supports diversity through a range of curricular and co-curricular offerings, as well as through programmatic pastoral and experiential learning. We strive to model and live respect, love, and openness to the world in all we do, always reminded that we are rooted in our Catholic faith and its call to social justice.
