At Norfolk Collegiate School, students, faculty and staff enjoy a community of mutual trust, honesty and respect. The school's Honor Code, which does not condone cheating, lying, stealing, plagiarism and deception, belongs to the students and serves as a source of pride for the student body. At the beginning of each academic year, middle and upper school students sign a pledge that they understand the principles of the Honor Code.
The Honor Code is promoted by Middle and Upper School Honor Councils. Student representatives to the councils assist the school with upholding the code. Throughout the year, representatives of the councils meet with students at the lower, middle and upper schools in a variety of age-appropriate assemblies, roundtable discussions and programs to educate their peers about honor and integrity.
Faculty members also play a large part in the honor system at Norfolk Collegiate School. Teachers instill trust in students and engage them in regular discussions about the importance of honor.
