St. Andrew’s Episcopal School believes that personal honor and integrity are essential for a productive and successful life. Therefore, each St. Andrew’s student pledges to not lie, cheat, or steal. Students are taught at every level the importance of honesty and trust in their daily lives.
Philosophy || The St. Andrew’s community prides itself on the mutual trust and respect among and between students and staff members; that trust is made possible through the Honor Code. The code permits freedoms in the school community while encouraging students to accept responsibility for their own actions, and the success of the Honor Code is contingent upon its support by the student body. While middle and upper school students sign the code individually pledging to refrain from lying, cheating, and stealing, they are encouraged to support the code by reporting any code violations they may observe.
The Honor Pledge || Every student in St. Andrew’s middle school and upper school, as well as all faculty and staff, shall sign the Honor Book, pledging to accept and uphold the Honor Code. The Honor Code is simply stated:
“On my honor as a St. Andrew’s student, I pledge that I will neither lie, nor cheat, nor steal.”
