The Bear Creek School defines diversity, equity, and inclusion through the lens of faith—that God is the author and originator of all things, including humans, the crown of his creation, made in his image. As an image-bearer of God, each person contains value and significance, and thus, should be valued for his or her uniqueness, treated with equity and respect, and invited to participate in every aspect of the life of the school.
