Honor Code

The students of Kenston Forest School are expected to conduct themselves as ladies and gentlemen. They are expected to adhere to principles of good character, family values and Judeo-Christian ideals.

The Kenston Forest School Honor Code is “I will not lie, cheat, or steal nor tolerate the actions of those who do.” This is a basic statement of honorable behavior. This code of the students, by the students, and for the students, helps to provide a dignified environment and community of trust in which students may learn and mature into responsible citizens. The Honor Code is a covenant between students expecting honorable behavior and rejecting dishonorable behavior in others.

Our goal is for Kenston Forest School students, having practiced these principles during their time here and having seen the benefits they bestow, to live by them for the rest of their lives. Upper school students write and sign the following pledge on all tests and research papers: “I have neither given nor received any help on this work, nor am I aware of any infraction of the Honor Code.” For more information, please see the Upper School Handbook.
