Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

At Foxcroft, we understand the importance of a diverse school community and how each girl's high school education experience is enriched by living among people from a variety of backgrounds.

Here, we embrace our similarities and celebrate our differences. Our program encourages students, faculty, and staff to share perspectives and pursue a variety of learning opportunities essential to maintaining an inclusive residential community that fosters meaningful relationships and mutual respect.


Lorem Ipsum Dolor

Foxcroft to me is truly a home away from home. Many are drawn to it because of the uncommonly beautiful campus. But the beauty isn’t the trees, the horses, or the flowers for that matter. The beauty of the campus comes from the people that go here.

Black History Month

Students from Foxcroft’s Black Student Union (BSU) organize multiple events each year during Black History Month that allow the entire campus community to celebrate and reflect on Black History. 

Throughout the month, students share educational and informational videos and presentations during Morning Meetings on topics such as The Divine 9 and the Origins of Step. There are also performances ranging from vocal soloists to choreographed Step routines. The community comes together at a celebratory Black History Month banquet as well.



Hispanic Heritage Month

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Spanish Club and Foxcroft community celebrate annually with a Hispanic Heritage Month program and banquet. Students speak to the annual theme of the cultural celebration, sharing personal stories of what their Hispanic heritage means to them. The program also includes performances, including vocalists and dancers who perform an amazing Mexican dance known as “Balie Folklorico.


International Week

Foxcroft’s diversity and global community is never on more prominent display than during our annual International Week, organized by the World Languages Department, Global Cultures Club, and International Ambassadors. International Week boasts meals that take us around the globe, served throughout the week and chosen through surveying our student body, as well as trying to be representative of the countries we DO have in our community, and prepared by the Dining Hall staff. Students have created menus, brought in family recipes, and will share information about each cuisine and its respective culture.

The week culminates with the much anticipated International Gala and International Bazaar. The Gala will kick off Friday evening festivities with performances from many of our talented international and domestic students, followed by the Bazaar featuring workshops and interactive events.



Celebrating & Supporting Our Diverse Community

Through open discussion and a variety of activities, student-led clubs help increase understanding about issues of diversity and encourage students to engage in active listening and learning. For girls who share a common identity or life experience, affinity groups can help students  develop a more clear understanding of how their own identity shapes their experiences at Foxcroft. Each group is advised by a faculty sponsor.

Leadership & Growth Opportunities

Diversity Through Service

Foxcroft's longstanding tradition of giving back to the community — one of the School's core values — is the foundation for an annual Day of Service on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day each February. As "a day on, not a day off," the MLK Day of Service, as well as other service opportunities throughout the year, help students foster an understanding of different cultures and environments.

International Student Experience

Foxcroft has a full-time Director of International Student Services who supports girls in various aspects of their lives, ensuring they are fully prepared for college. Each year, girls from more than a dozen countries enroll at Foxcroft. In addition to a special orientation program, international students are involved in workshops and other initiatives that help them adjust to life in America. Girls participate in school clubs and athletics, as well as hold student leadership positions, enriching the experience for all members of our community.
