Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

The community of Mount St. Dominic Academy, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Dominic of Caldwell, has built its foundation, and everything that flows from it, on the Four Dominican Pillars of prayer, study, community, and mission.

Out of those core values flows a commitment to seeking the truth in all aspects of life, and a focus on the promotion of peace and justice. To fully and faithfully live those values within a modern-day construct, the Mount is focused on creating and sustaining an environment of belonging – free of racism, bias, and discrimination of any kind. 

The process of establishing guiding principles to create an environment of intention that nurtures and ensures diversity, equity and inclusion at the Mount is underway. Our commitment to DEIB will remain an ongoing priority that spans the Mount’s school culture, curriculum and community – past, present and future. It will be through great care and respect, education and understanding, collaboration and transparency that the Mount will embody the positive change we empower our students to make in the world.
