The Honor Code

Honor. Truth. Duty.

The Honor Code is McCallie School’s most treasured tradition.

The Code is predicated on the assumption that students are honorable men and have the right to be trusted. When enrolling in the Upper School, each student must sign the Book of Honor, accepting his personal responsibility for this Honor Code:

  • He will tell the truth and will not mislead others. A McCallie man does not lie.

  • He will ensure that the work he submits is his own and that he will neither give nor receive unauthorized assistance in his academic work. A McCallie man does not cheat.

  • He will respect the property of others and will ensure that it remains safe for their use. A McCallie man does not steal.

  • He will do all in his power to support the community of trust embodied in this Honor Code. A McCallie man does not condone dishonesty or the disregard of the Honor Code by other members of the McCallie community.
The Honor Code governs all McCallie students at all times and in all places.
