Almost seven decades after its founding, the School’s central project remains remarkably consistent with the aspirations that inspired its founding. Our core values, student handbooks, honor code, motto, song, and prayer all serve as guideposts in this regard.
At the beginning of each year upper and middle division advisory groups and lower division classes spend time discussing and understanding the School’s honor code, motto, song, prayer, and the standards of conduct described in each handbook. Students are invited to ask questions and reflect on how the School’s values align with their own values. After doing so, each student is expected to affirm that they have read and understand the School’s expectations for their behavior. Our community regularly reflects on the implications of these principles throughout the year.
