The Honor Council

Faculty Chair: Shane Tomashot
Faculty Advisors: Greer Dover and Andrew Perry

The Honor Council works to uphold the academic integrity of the Upper School. To join, prospective members must obtain the recommendations of three faculty members and write an essay describing their aptitude for and commitment to academic integrity. Essays are reviewed by the faculty sponsors, who then meet to select the students deemed most qualified. Students must be honest and trustworthy. Moreover, they must uphold a vow of confidentiality regarding cases and sessions. Once a student is accepted as an Honor Council member, they may continue to serve for the remainder of their high school career.
