Sewickley Academy's Honor Code serves to define a high standard of integrity, respect, and honesty in an effort to promote the greater good. In signing the honor pledge, students pledge not to lie, cheat, or steal and to adhere to the principles set forth in A Community of Respect. Violations of the Honor Code are referred to the Honor Council for review. The Honor Code applies to all academic, social, and extracurricular areas of the Sewickley Academy community.
The Honor Council maintains and enforces the Honor Code through investigative procedures and education of the Sewickley Academy community. The Honor Council consists of four seniors, three juniors, and two full-time Senior School faculty members. The Honor Prefect is chosen by the seven student members after they have been elected in the fall. The Honor Prefect presides over all proceedings of the Honor Council.
