Founded in 1972, The Mount Vernon School is a leading private school of inquiry, innovation and impact. Anchored in Christian values - love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control - relationships at Mount Vernon are foundational to learning. Preparing students to be college ready, globally competitive, and engaged citizen leaders calls us to lean in to inclusion, diversity, equity and action.
Creating and cultivating connections between all people, ideas and sectors, the School welcomes all learners to wrestle with voices and perspectives that challenge our assumptions, biases, stereotypes and privileges. Not allowing our differences to divide us requires each of us to engage in honest, vulnerable and courageous conversations through empathy, refection, examination and action. Being real agents of change is a continuous journey.
Committed to diversity, equity and inclusion our trust in each other strengthens our sense of identity, autonomy and interdependence. As a school of inquiry, innovation and impact we are committed to creating and sustaining a school culture where all members feel valued and safe, sharing their authentic selves to design a better world...together.
