Employer's Approach to Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

Examples of our recent actions in diversity, equity, and belonging include our staff and students participating in the “Point Made Learning” program called “Look Deeper: Race.” Because of our connection to the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont, we also have been involved with the work Bishop Shannon MacVean Brown has done, grappling with the racist history of the Episcopal Church. Our Head of School is currently the head of the Antiracism Action Committee within the diocese. Due to this work, students and staff resolved to remove a large portrait of Bishop Hopkins from the school due to what we learned about his racist beliefs and hung a Black Lives Matter Flag in front of the school. In our school curriculum, teachers have worked to center the voices of people who are outside the dominant culture. For example in our U.S. history class, An Indigenous People's History of the United States is a central text, and this year students are reading and discussing pieces from 400 Hundred Souls, A Community History of African America, 1619-2019. We also have an active GSA club that participates in statewide events with Outright Vermont. This fall Pamela Schuller, an alumna of Rock Point and a disability activist and comedian, came to perform and give workshops to the community on inclusion. Our administrators recently attended a workshop by the Association of Independent Schools in New England on building inclusive hiring practices for the school and we continue to seek out ways to make our school more inclusive. Our efforts to incorporate anti-racism and anti-bias teachings into our curriculum and community are ongoing and crucial to the future of our school.
