As an essential component to our commitment-to-character education, we value an inclusive community, committed to equity and justice for all of our constituencies. We welcome all genders, orientations, religions, beliefs, races, cultures and ethnicities.
The La Jolla Country Day School (LJCDS) community represents students, faculty, staff and trustees of different cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Currently, 33 percent of our students self-identify as students of color and 14 percent self-identify as mixed race. We believe a diverse community contributes to a more enriching experience for every adult and student at the school. Many studies conclude that diversity is the key to a thriving and happy environment in both educational and professional settings. As we prepare our students to be global citizens, we work to ensure that every child has the skills and awareness to embrace humanity in all of its diversity.
