Fessenden Inclusion Statement
At Fessenden inclusion means building a community whose spirit and purpose is based on mutual respect and care. It is vital that each member feels recognized and valued. Inclusion is an essential part of our mission to cultivate each student’s potential and develop each boy’s mind, character, and heart. We believe that differences of backgrounds, perspectives and cultures are integral to preparing boys to be successful young men in a global community. Ongoing, mindful practice of inclusion requires both individual and institutional commitment to self-examination and learning. We further our mission to be a joyfully inclusive community by aligning policies, curriculum, and decision-making to support diversity and inclusion. Inclusion is at the heart of how we treat each other in our daily interactions.

We are guided by and are committed to the following community principles:
  • Treat others with honesty and respect
  • Practice compassion; make an effort to understand and care for others
  • Honor diversity; promote a healthy respect for individual differences and affirm commonalities
  • Celebrate individual potential; nurture the many ways boys learn
  • Reject prejudice, bullying, and elitism; renounce behavior that excludes others
  • Engage in open, trusting dialogue; seek to learn from those who have differing opinions
  • Serve to strengthen our inclusive community
