Culture Identity Resources
Students who attend independent high schools have a particular need for cultural identity resources. Although integration of diversity within the larger school community is often a priority within schools, it is often student clubs that serve as the primary point of connection to multicultural experiences. In most cases, prep-school youth attend quality institutions that offer a wide range of options for academic, sports, arts, community service, and social networking activities. These educational environments provide a desirable advantage in applying to top tier colleges, but, in many cases, also create intense academic and social pressures that constrain students’ options for active multi-cultural engagement. Teens in independent high schools, by virtue of their schedules alone, are at high risk for losing their connection to unique cultural identities in regard to race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, class, and other categories, in years of their lives that are formative to relationships, perspectives, and identity allegiances that will carry them into adulthood.
We encourage you, before we meet, to draw some conclusions about what you would like to bring to the table. We hope that you will use our assessment tool and questionnaire to make corollaries and to engage your creativity.
