Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Tatnall’s Mission states that each graduate will be prepared "to assume the important role of a responsible member of society in all its diversity."
The Tatnall School embraces diversity in all forms of human identity, such as race, gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, physical ability, religion, and socioeconomic status. Therefore, in order to support our Mission, the school is committed to recognizing the existing diversity of our community, to respecting the uniqueness of each member, and to creating a culture that is inclusive, welcoming, and safe for all. Our community expects interactions that welcome and respect all students, families, faculty, staff, and trustees.

Since a core value of our community is excellence, we must recognize that diversity, and the pursuit of equity and justice are essential to creating a welcoming academic environment where students of diverse representations grow and learn from each other. 
Thus, The Tatnall School adapts to human differences appropriate to its Mission in order to provide the best possible education for lifelong learning, service to the community, and preparation for an ethical, productive, joyful life in a complex and changing world.
