Calhoun strives to build a learning environment with our core values of diversity, equity and inclusion at the center.

We believe diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to our academic program because they create opportunities for critical thinking and analysis, social/emotional skill acquisition, self-expression and design thinking. Calhoun views DEI work as a foundational component of our educational program and of the school's mission.
