Bringing richness and strength
At Agnes Irwin, we recognize the importance of diversity among the student body, faculty and staff in bringing a richness and strength to the quality of our community. Agnes Irwin is filled with a wonderful mixture of girls whose talents, interests and perspectives are wide-ranging and distinctive. We have promising actresses and gifted dancers, nascent scientists and championship athletes, emerging artists and budding poets.
Our students represent an array of racial, ethnic, religious, socio-economic and geographic backgrounds. Twenty percent of our girls are students of color, while nearly 50 girls have a parent(s) who was born in another country and for whom English is a second language. Many religious faiths are represented at our school, and we acknowledge and celebrate many faith-based observances.
Currently, 23 percent of our girls receive financial assistance based on a range of need, and our girls reside in more than 50 communities in the greater Delaware Valley region, from Phoenixville to Philadelphia, Media to Morton, Bryn Mawr to Blue Bell.
The Agnes Irwin community works toward our multicultural goals in many ways. Leadership for these efforts is provided by:
- Director of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs
- Community Alliance for Inclusion and Diversity (CAID)
- Upper School Multicultural Board (student)
- Upper School Diversity Coalition (student)
- Asian Student Alliance
- Black Student Union
- Interfaith Initiative (staff and student)
- Prism (Upper School GSA)
