Programs & Committees
Cary Academy's commitment to diversity, multiculturalism, equity, and justice are evident through its ongoing programs and initiatives.
What is 14 Words For Love?
An organization that promotes small acts of literacy and art for social good. Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to pen a 14-word poem or story to give as a gift to someone else.
Why 14 Words?
Unfortunately, hate groups still exist and still recruiting. One such group’s motto is “14 words” which speaks to keeping Aryan lines ‘pure.’ 14 Words For Love is aimed at inclusiveness and the beauty and wisdom of diversity in our communities. We want to reclaim 14 Words for love, for good.
The goal of diversity programming at Cary Academy is to support and stimulate a community that nurtures and values diversity, prepare students to be successful global citizens, and build and maintain a diverse community.
The Office of Diversity and diversity-related programming includes:
The Ubuntu Celebration is an annual spring event in the spirit of Ubuntu - a South African proverb meaning "I am because you are, you are because I am" - aimed at exposing students to worldwide cultures and perspectives through performances, an International Café featuring ethnic cuisine representative of Cary Academy's diverse population, and interactive workshops, presentations, and discussions. Its goal is to promote global awareness and appreciation, demonstrate the importance and relevance of learning other languages and cultures, and to explore global community interdependence.
Parents of African American Students (formerly Friends of Cary Academy): A network of African American parents who meet to discuss their experiences, diversity, and relationship across the CA community. The group serves as a resource for identifying and retaining African American applicants and support for new and existing African American families.
