Academic Integrity

Students at all levels are expected to pursue their studies with integrity and honesty in all school settings. All work that a student submits will be the original and authentic work of the individual student unless otherwise specified in the assignment.


Students have the responsibility to:

  • Uphold the highest standards of academic integrity in the student’s own work
  • Refuse to participate in or tolerate violations of academic integrity in the school community
  • Foster a high sense of integrity and social responsibility in the school community


The following examples of academic dishonesty will result in disciplinary action

  • Cheating
  • Altering or interfering with grading
  • Using or consulting any materials or personal electronic devices/wireless communication devices not authorized by the teacher during a test or assignment
  • Submitting an assignment purchased or otherwise obtained from a third party
  • Plagiarism
  • Lack of proper academic citation (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago, AP)
  • Distributing test questions, homework questions, assignments and other school testing or evaluation materials, or answers thereto in a manner that enables or advances the examples of Academic Dishonesty set forth herein
  • Willfully or knowingly taking an online course or examination on behalf of another person, or allowing someone to take an online course or examination for you

(These are examples for guidance purposes and do not constitute an exhaustive list.)
