What is the purpose of the Honor Code?
The purpose of the Honor Code is to encourage respect, trust, and cooperation among all members of the CCES community. Students are accountable for their own behavior and are stewards of the honor and integrity of the school community. We uphold the Honor Code because we believe that honorable behavior is essential to academic integrity and the foundation for character development in all areas of our lives.
How do we demonstrate our commitment to the Honor Code?
We demonstrate a commitment to the Honor Code by striving to live every day with honor and integrity. In Grades 5 through 12, students are expected to understand and adhere to the Honor Code. Students and faculty pledge their commitment to the Honor Code annually during our Honor Chapel services. In the Lower School, the principles of the Honor Code are emphasized, taught, encouraged, and enforced at a developmentally appropriate level.
