Honor Code & C-Prep
C-Prep Honor Code
As a member of the Western Sierra Collegiate Academy community, I pledge to conduct myself at all times honorably and in a way that shows pride in myself, my family, my school and my community. As a person of honor I will show:
Respect for Academic Honesty in all my scholastic efforts. I will at all times use my best efforts to accomplish the highest academic achievement of which I am capable. My words and my work will be free from deceit, plagiarism and misrepresentation.
Respect for Others in all my words, expressions and deeds. I will be kind and courteous to teachers, staff and fellow students and refrain from hurtful words and actions. I will respect people’s privacy. I will encourage others to pursue personal happiness and academic success in the school community.
Respect for Property at all times. I will treat my school as I would my home and the property of others as private and not to be touched without their permission. I will take pride in my campus and go out of my way to always insure that my school reflects the values and expectations of a quality learning and work environment.
Respect for Myself in everything I do. I understand that my academic work, my conduct with others, my attitude towards property, my personal honor and the honor of my school community are my personal responsibility. I will uphold this code by observing it myself and assisting my school peers in making self- honoring choices. I am committed to actively support the Western Sierra Honor Code and promise to faithfully follow these responsible, resourceful and respectful expectations.
