Diversity is at the core of Cold Spring School’s values, educational philosophy and mission. With families from across the city and around the globe, we are committed to fostering a more interwoven, equitable and peaceful world by teaching, modeling and acting with openness, curiosity, reflection and justice.

At this moment in our nation’s political discourse, we wish to reaffirm Cold Spring School’s deep commitment to creating and holding a space in which each of our children and families is known, embraced and safe. Cold Spring invites and, in fact, encourages the participation of children and families of diverse nations, religions, races and ethnicities, gender identities and sexual orientation.

Cold Spring School’s mission is to challenge “children to become self-reliant, curious and resourceful problem solvers with the academic and social skills to engage constructively and ethically in our diverse, changing world.” We believe this mission is best fulfilled in a learning community where children feel safe to be themselves and where differences are viewed as rich opportunities for learning and growth.
