          For Our Students

          List of 5 items.

          • Black Student Union

            The Black Student Union provides a forum for students of color at NCS and enhances school life in general by promoting awareness of Black History, culture, and contemporary issues relating to Blacks and other students of color. In addition to meetings, BSU sponsors dances and visits to other BSU chapters. Membership is open to all students in grades 7-12.
          • Equity Board

            The Upper School Equity Board, a subsidiary of the Student Government, is made up of faculty, administrators, and students in the Upper School community. The Board is co-chaired by a senior and the US Multicultural Education Chair, and also consists of two representatives from each grade (9-12). The MS Equity Board has a faculty advisor; students can join the group as a club activity.

            Both Equity Boards serve the NCS community as 1) an arena for discussion to which students can bring topics, questions and proposals, and 2) a proactive committee in planning programs that address equity issues on campus.

          • Gender and Sexuality Alliance

            The Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) is a student-run club that explores issues related to gender and sexuality at our school and, more broadly, in our society and world. It seeks to foster a climate at NCS in which students feel safe and empowered to live as valued members of our community. Activities include bake sales, commemorations of events such as National Coming Out Day, and discussions about straight and cisgendered allyship.
          • Kaleidoscope

            Kaleidoscope is a student-initiated, student-led space for dialogue on current issues related to social justice and diversity. Coming together regularly throughout the year, Kaleidoscope has no official members and no elected leaders. It may inspire change, but it is primarily designed as a safe space for students to reflect, share, and listen to one another with courage and respect.

          For Our Faculty

          • Professional Development

            Faculty and staff at NCS are encouraged to participate in professional development opportunities related to diversity and multicultural education. Our faculty and staff regularly attend annual conferences like NAIS’s People of Color Conference, the White Privilege Conference, and events hosted by local associations like East Ed, AIMS and AISGW. Additionally, speakers and consultants are invited regularly to provide workshops and seminars on research about multicultural pedagogy, brain development, cultural competency, and other topics.

          • Affinity Groups

            Affinity Groups bring together faculty and staff who share aspects of identity that may impact their experience at NCS. The groups provide a space for reflection, dialogue and support, and they create opportunities for empowerment of the individual and of the group within the greater community. Groups include Latino/a Faculty and Staff, Black/African American Women, LGBTQ Faculty and Staff, Interfaith Connections, and White Anti-Racist Allies.


          National Cathedral School pursues its goal of Educating Women for the World by honoring the diversity of background, culture, and perspective within this community. We aim to provide an environment where each student’s identity and individual story has space to mature and to inform her days at NCS. That identity is invariably unique as it reflects race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, sexual orientation, family history, body image, abilities, and beliefs. Our appreciation of what each person brings to the school comes to life in vibrant community gatherings as well as in a rigorous academic program, and this prepares our students for their time beyond NCS.
          We treasure the ongoing process of cultivating each student’s identity as she grows in our community. It challenges all of us – students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, and our governing board – to play our part in ensuring that each student feels supported and fully able to take advantage of NCS’s opportunities. To do so, we strive to imbue our classrooms with informed multicultural curriculum and pedagogy, to design student life programs that encourage inclusivity, and to surround ourselves with a diverse group of students and teachers that enrich our daily interactions. We invite you to be part of this journey. So much good work has already been done, and there is so much more we can do as we learn from each other through our connections to National Cathedral School.
