Diversity & Inclusion

Suffield Academy has a close-knit, diverse community. The school has a nurturing, welcoming environment where all students effectively learn and grow. Our inclusiveness is reflected by the meaningful relationships built and sustained on campus.
 

The educational and campus life experiences at Suffield are designed to promote a healthy, warm campus climate and a community based on mutual respect, generosity, kindness, and genuine concern for others. We believe a diverse and inclusive educational atmosphere helps students grow in positive ways and prepare for college and life. Our faculty serves our students with an unwavering commitment to leadership and acceptance. Our community is diligent in supporting students, faculty, and staff concerning all issues of equity and opportunity as they relate to race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, learning style, and interests.

“Growing up in a dual cultural household presented both benefits and challenges in my quest through childhood. At Suffield, my unique background broadened my perspective of the world and helped me form relationships with peers and adults. This myriad of nationalities has enhanced my interculturality, helped me embrace who I am, and prepared me to welcome new opportunities with an open mind and heart.”   Annie Daramola ’20
