Woodside Priory’s Commitment to Diversity Integrity

Priory actively seeks to advance the equity and diversity of our community through professional development, admissions, hiring and retention. We believe that diversity does not inherently lead to inclusion, but must be built through structures which uphold the social contract of those whom we admit or hire. Integrity to this social contract means a commitment to mutuality in relationships, equitable power distribution, and care for the dignity of each person. Through vigilance of our own culture and practices, regular examination of our systemic biases, and growth in our cultural proficiency, Priory strives for an educational and working experience where all can be seen, known, and loved.

  • Professional Development

    School-wide professional development runs throughout the school year with the goal of supporting and guiding teachers to innovate, evaluate, and reflect on teaching practices. From studying Benedictine identity to implementing Learning Competencies into the classroom experience, Priory's in-house PD has encouraged teachers to approach their craft with a growth mindset, which strongly connects with the school's
    mission and 21st century learning competency goals.

    Beyond in-house professional development, Priory also supports faculty in developing their professional practice in general as well as specific discipline interest areas that align with the school’s mission and goals.

    Priory encourages all faculty to pursue PD opportunities in areas of Benedictine education, leadership, innovation, diversity, curriculum development and educational technology. Some
    examples include:
    • Annual NAIS conference
    • Annual POCIS/ White Privilege Conference
    • Annual BLSS summer PD at Saint Anselm College
    • Benedictine Education Conferences, both national and international
    • CATDC workshops
