Children’s Aid College Prep Charter School is on the journey to become an anti-racist institution. We believe our community of students, employees and parents deserve a school environment where everyone is valued.
We acknowledge that institutional structures in the United States are historically racist and we want to do our part by purposefully identifying, discussing and challenging issues of race and color, realizing the impact these issues have on the organization, its systems, and its people. We challenge ourselves to correct inequities we discover within CACPCS and gain a better understanding of ourselves during the process.
As we continue to learn, we do believe in the diversity of thoughts, ideas, beliefs, experiences and the inclusion of people regardless of color, gender, language, national origin, sexual orientation, abilities or age.
We are committed to building true partnerships with our community by integrating anti-racist work into everything we do. Through a diversity council, staff affinity groups, examining school policies and procedures, ongoing workshops and clinical trainings, and consultation services, we study and confront issues of race, racism, systemic inequities, disparities and community-wide and intergenerational impact.
