Honor Code Dinner

Students and faculty joined together in the Fisher-Watkins Dining Commons on Monday for our annual Honor Code dinner. During the formal ceremony, students signed their names in the Honor Code book as a permanent record of their commitment to the shared values of the Cushing Honor Code.
“For me, the Honor Code dinner is a time to celebrate the bond of trust we share as a community.”
Caroline Fital ‘17
“Our Honor Code represents a foundation upon which our community builds its trust. It's the reason that I can leave my room unlocked during the day and not worry about my things being stolen.”
Andrew Charman ’17, Student Body President
“The values represented in the Honor Code should underscore all of our work together as students and faculty. That we set aside an all-school dinner to recognize this says a lot about the significance of the Honor Code in our community.”
Mr. David Stone, Dean of Faculty
“The Honor Code serves as a touchstone, an opportunity to check in with yourself at any given moment.  It affords you the opportunity to ask if you are being the best version of yourself and if you are meeting not only the expectations of the school, which is obviously important, but to also ask yourself if you are meeting your own expectations.  While the Honor Code is a shared statement, it assists us all in developing our personal codes of ethics.”
Mrs. Chelle Salvucci, Faculty


As a member of Cushing Academy’s diverse student body, I recognize that trust and honesty form the foundation of our community. Therefore, I pledge to uphold the Honor Code in all aspects of my life: I will be truthful in my interactions and will demonstrate respect for others and their belongings, as well as those of the Academy. Furthermore, I will maintain high standards of academic honesty in accordance with Cushing’s policies and the expectations of my teachers and peers. If I observe or become aware that a member of the community has violated or intends to violate the Honor Code, I will act decisively to preserve the integrity of the Academy.
I seek an environment in which all individuals can live and learn together in ways that protect personal freedom and community standards. Therefore, as a student at Cushing Academy, I accept my responsibilities as outlined in the Honor Code and will do my utmost to uphold its precepts.
