Student Leadership

Criteria for Honor Council

In order for a student to be nominated for the Honor Council, the student must, during the freshman, sophomore, or junior year, display responsible academic behavior and demonstrate concern for fellow students and a willingness to serve the St. Andrewʼs- Sewanee community. The applicant must abide by school rules and be supportive of these rules. Criteria for Honor Council include:

  • No major disciplinary violations or violations of the Honor Code 
  • Compliance with the schoolʼs dress code
  • No campus confinement/restriction or suspension for excessive absences
  • No pattern of violations that lead to detentions

No academic concern or academic probation issues

Criteria for Proctorship

In order for a student to be nominated for proctorship, the student must, during the junior year, display responsible academic behavior and demonstrate concern for fellow students and a willingness to serve the St. Andrewʼs-Sewanee community. The applicant must abide by school rules and be supportive of these rules. 

Criteria for proctorship include:

  • No major disciplinary violations or violations of the Honor Code during their junior year
  • Compliance with the schoolʼs dress code
  • No campus confinement/restriction or suspension for excessive absences
  • No pattern of violations that lead to detentions
  • No academic concern or academic probation issues

Proctors are expected to demonstrate particularly high standards in their own conduct and in the performance of their duties. Therefore, proctors are awarded certain privileges beyond those given to other students:

  • Day proctors may visit in residential houses during the school day. 
  • Boarding proctors are allowed the privilege of staying up in their residential house room until 11:30 p.m., so long as they are quiet. 
  • Both day and boarding proctors have the privilege to drive if they have no grade below a 70 and have parent/guardian permission on file.

Proctors who do not exhibit high standards may be required to forfeit their position. Any major violation of school rules, chronic minor violations which include but are not limited to five unexcused absences or ten detentions or use of tobacco, will be grounds for loss of proctorship.

S.H.O.W. (Students Helping Out Weekly)

Responsibility for daily services and upkeep of the physical campus belongs to every member of the community. All Upper School students are assigned a job each semester and are expected to perform work each week and to participate in scheduled project days.
