The Honor Code
As part of the process of educating the whole child, and in support of our mission as a church school, we at St. Margaret’s believe that each student must learn to live with others under a code of honor. The Honor Code requires that each student act responsibly; that she not lie, cheat, or steal; and that she provide a positive example and encouragement to others. During a formal service in the Chapel at the beginning of school, each student signs the Honor Book, signifying her agreement to conduct herself with honor in this community; the presence of the community reminds her that she does not stand alone in her commitment.
Integrity is also the foundation of St. Margaret’s academic program. We expect all of our students to be intellectually honest and to know the true satisfaction that comes from doing one’s best. The Honor Council, composed of five girls elected by the school community and two faculty sponsors, educates students throughout the year and enforces the honor system.

On my honor, I will not lie, cheat, or steal. In addition, I will take responsibility for those in our community who do so.
