The students and faculty at North Cross School believe strongly they should work together in a spirit of honesty, fairness, and trust in which everyone is treated with dignity and respect. This spirit is embodied in a traditional Honor Code, which consists of three principles:
I will not lie. I will not cheat. I will not steal.
These principles are clear and obvious. They must inform and guide the behavior of every North Cross School student. The Honor Code demands that each student’s work be his/her own; that credit be given to those sources from which work may be derived; that no student give or receive help on any assignment without fully acknowledging that help; and that each student be honest and forthcoming in his/her relationship with faculty or fellow students.
At the start of each year, and throughout the academic year, faculty members and members of the Honor Council lead discussions with the student body about each aspect of the Honor Code. Each student is encouraged to live by the Honor Code and to report infractions of the Code. Each student must accept the responsibilities associated with the Code for it to be successful.
