Our Values in Action

Honor Code

Honor and Trust

Honor and trust are vitally important in our small community. Every member of the community signs our Honor Code annually, vowing not to lie, cheat, or steal. Students accused of violating the Honor Code may be required to appear before the Honor Council, an elected committee of students and faculty advisors that deliberates about each situation and then makes a recommendation to the Head of School.

Community Service & Outreach

Students at SAS are required to complete 15 hours of community service for each year they are in the Upper School, but we don't approach service as an obligation or a line on a college application. Our service is born of our sense of responsibility for the community we live in. Projects range from schoolwide or class-based activities to students seeing a need and addressing it as individuals or in small groups. Students Helping Out Weekly (SHOW) puts students to work for one hour each week in service to the school. SHOW jobs include dish crew (a requirement for every student new to the Upper School), teachers' helpers, public relations and admissions assistants, and more.

Teacher/Student

Discipline

We have not forgotten that the word “discipline" shares the same root as “disciple." Both come from the Latin for “teaching and learning." Our understanding of this relationship is reflected in our proactive approach that helps students to make the right decision and helps to guide them back to the right path when they stray. Major rules violations are adjudicated by a committee of students and teachers who make a recommendation to the Head of School.
