Making some “good trouble” at Stuart - Meet our Student Diversity Board!
In late fall, the Student Diversity Board announced its members for the 2021-2022 school year! To be considered for the board, students had to submit an application sharing their own thoughts on diversity, equity and inclusion and complete at least one interview with a Stuart faculty or staff member.

The National SEED Project (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) is a peer-led professional development program that creates conversational communities to drive personal, organizational, and societal change toward greater equity and diversity. SEED is an opportunity to develop oneself both personally and professionally in a safe space. Over the past 10 years, Stuart has invested heavily in providing professional development to faculty and staff in the areas of DEIB, and all Stuart faculty and staff will complete SEED training within 3 years of employment at Stuart.

Stuart partners with NJ SEEDS and A Better Chance to identify talented, mission-appropriate students who would thrive at Stuart.
Over 40% of students at Stuart receive some sort of tuition assistance to attend. In addition to providing financial support for students from various income levels, Stuart offers additional assistance to students through the Stuart Experience program. The Stuart Experience is designed to ensure that all students are able to participate in Stuart’s signature programming through service experiences, technology, social engagements and critical academic opportunities such as AP exams and academic books. In addition, all Middle and Upper School students, regardless of tuition assistance provided, receive lunch as part of their tuition.
