Educational Equity

ISAAGNY is a proud proponent of inclusive and equitable admissions processes. Every member school is expected to promote access and opportunities for all families seeking an independent school experience for their children. We welcome diversity and embrace differences, including--but not limited to--those of race, ethnicity, family structure, physical ability, gender identity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, neurodiversity, and any characteristic protected by applicable law.


We uphold our commitment to authentic advocacy with inquiry, education, and most importantly, tangible change. Please find below some examples of our ongoing efforts:
