Erie Day School believes that diversity should include areas such as gender, learning style, physical challenges, race and ethnicity, religion, and socio-economic characteristics that contribute to each individual’s full identity. We believe that by living our motto every day, we have established ourselves as a diverse school. We strive to instill a sense of awareness and to stretch our minds and hearts so that we live our lives in wisdom and acceptance of these differences. We stress the importance of being friends to all people. We believe that by embracing the unique experiences and varied backgrounds among our students, faculty, staff, and families, we learn to affirm and respect self and others.

Erie Day School has students representing numerous nationalities and ethnicities including:  African American; Asian; Caucasian; International; Latino; Middle Eastern and Multi-racial American (categories as segmented from NAIS).
