Honor Code

A Harding Academy student will not lie, cheat, steal or tolerate those who do.

Above all else, Harding Academy strives to foster in students a true commitment and desire to serve and please Christ. “Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men...” (Ephesians 6:7). We uphold high standards of personal conduct in all matters as a means of honoring God and as part of our understanding of Christian behavior. At Harding, we put a high premium on a life that honors God—a life that is open, transparent, sincere, and dependable. We expect students to be where they are supposed to be, doing what they are supposed to do, whether or not anyone is watching. These standards are the articulation of our expectations for honorable behavior in every aspect of school life:
Honor Code:

  • I will conduct myself in a manner that honors Jesus Christ.I will be honest and hardworking.
  • I will respect my parents, teachers, and other adults whom God has placed in authority over me.
  • I will love my neighbor as myself.
  • I will report to a parent, teacher, or principal any student behavior that threatens the safety and integrity of our school community.

Mrs. Semore or Dr. Frizzell will meet with each student who violates the honor code. Parents will be notified and a report filed in the student’s record.
