Diversity and Inclusion

“We must have courage in the times we live in. Great souls are needed, souls having the interests of God at heart.” - St. Julie Billiart, Foundress, Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur


Inspired by the Hallmarks of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, Maryvale Preparatory School is dedicated to building and advancing a respectful and compassionate culture that embraces diversity, equity, justice and inclusion.

We believe that our diversity is reflected in many facets among individuals including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, national origin, religious belief, gender, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, learning style and ability. The Maryvale Board of Trustees, students, families, employees and alumnae celebrate and honor the diverse gifts that God bestows upon each person.

The Maryvale community is enriched and strengthened when all are able to act willingly, share openly and live securely without fear of judgment, ridicule or prejudice. We trust that the comprehensive experiences of a Maryvale education will enable students, as well as the members of the broader community, to value themselves and the dignity of others as leaders in a global community.
