Behind the Veil: A Study of the Experiences of Academically Talented Students of Color Who Attend Independent Schools

Jackson Collins, Prep for Prep

Target Audience: All Educators


This workshop will present the findings from a mixed-methods research study that included 525 participants in 6th though 12th grade from 74 independent schools in the Northeast. The study presents statistical and narrative data that make a case for a reexamination of how we support students of color and how we engage the broader school community.
The findings presented in this workshop will also illuminate specific areas of student support and specific pain points for students of color who attend predominantly white institutions. Central themes presented include the sense of belonging, emotional well-being, and racial coping self-efficacy and competence in the context of the independent school experience for students of color.
Based on the numbers and stories within the data, the workshop will also examine the ways in which we can improve advocacy, equity, and communication within our school communities.
