Commitment to Diversity
Chapin School seeks to enrich and broaden student perspectives through a deliberate and ongoing commitment to attract, maintain and celebrate a diverse school community. Recognizing the family as the first source of identity, and respecting the individuality and traditions of each child, we strive to build an inclusive, compassionate community. Appreciating that human growth is fostered through relationships with people from diverse backgrounds, Chapin prepares students to value differences and to be actively engaged in an ever-changing, culturally complex world.
Chapin School prohibits discrimination against and harassment of students and/or employees on the basis of race, color, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age, marital status, disability and/or any other protected characteristics under all applicable laws.
It is the policy of the Chapin School to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, which prohibits discrimination based on sex (including sexual harassment and sexual violence) in the school’s educational programs and activities. Title IX also prohibits retaliation for asserting or otherwise participating in claims of sex discrimination.
When a student, faculty or staff member, or other participant in the school’s programs and activities feels that s/he has, at any time, been subjected to discrimination on the basis of sex carried out by employees, students, volunteers, or third parties, s/he may use Title IX grievance procedures to bring concerns to the attention of the school’s Title IX Coordinator for the purpose of obtaining a prompt and equitable resolution.
Bob Cotter, Director of Development, has been designated to handle inquiries regarding Chapin's non-discrimination policies as the school's Title IX Coordinator.
