  • Core Value (How we do it)

    We believe in the DIGNITY of all people because every human has inherent value and self-worth. Dignity can mean many things to many people. At La Jolla Country Day School, we value:
    • Diversity — We embrace and advance the diversity of our student body, faculty, staff, board of trustees and community partners to foster an enduring interest in divergent ideas, concepts and cultures. 
    • Inclusion and Safety — We create and sustain an inclusive and equitable community that affirms the identities of all individuals to provide everyone an opportunity to thrive. 
    • Collaboration — We make connections and cultivate meaningful relationships through the power of collaboration to help ourselves and others lead happier, healthier and more purposeful lives.
    • Student Independence and Growth — We teach students how to think, not what to think. We strive to instill a sense of independence and self-confidence so that they can discover their authentic selves and advocate for what they believe.
“When we extend dignity to others, we open ourselves to the possibility of becoming more caring, more loving and compassionate–in a word, more human.” —Donna Hicks, Ph.D.
