Student Affinity Groups 

Black Student Affinity Group  (BSAG) provides a safe, supportive, and affirming space for our students who identify as Black and/or African-American. The affinity group meets weekly to discuss various topics around race and equality, and hosts events with influential Black leaders throughout the year. The BSAG hosts the All-School Black History Month Assembly  to help educate the School about African American culture and history.

SAGA  (Sexuality And Gender Alliance) is a group of LGBTQ+ and allied students, supported by faculty advisors, that is committed to educating and advocating on issues of sexuality, gender, and inclusivity in order to create a safe environment for all.
