A MESSAGE FROM POLY’S HEAD OF SCHOOL

At Poly Prep Country Day School, we value diversity, strive for equity, and embrace social justice as integral to a well-lived life. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment where students feel fully supported in bringing their authentic selves to the learning process. The work of delivering upon this commitment is not done. We stand in solidarity with you, our current and future community members, to engage in a reckoning over racial injustice and to educate the next generation of anti-racist leaders. We encourage families of all backgrounds and experiences to explore Poly Prep. You are welcome here if your child’s educational history includes public or charter schools, parochial or private schools, local or international experiences, challenges, privileges, successes and failures. Our admissions office looks forward to learning more about your child and your family through a fully transparent process without hidden rules or implied meanings. Your questions and feedback help us make sure that this is the case. Thank you for being here with us.
