Diversity & Inclusion

A Call for Justice On May 25, 2020 the world changed. In an act that took exactly 8:46, George Floyd was callously murdered by officers of the Minneapolis Police Department. In the wake of that event, we have experienced a resurgence of calls for racial justice leading to a modern Civil Rights Movement.
Our Call to Action We heard from alumnae and current students who chronicled the stories of their experiences with racism & inequity. The stories are heartbreaking, and NCDS is called to redress its past and establish a new foundation for future students. It’s with this in mind, that Newton Country reaffirms our commitment as an anti-racist institution rooted in the love of Jesus and living in the spirit of the Goals of the Sacred Heart.

She is always looking forward, challenging, and empowering herself to achieve.
