Parent Bill of Rights
In addition to a mission for our school, we have made a pledge to Saint Mary’s Hall parents. We call it the Parent Bill of Rights. This pledge lists our commitments to knowing students on an individual level, maintaining high academic standards, and providing opportunities for students that are not available anywhere else, among others. Take a moment to read the Parent Bill of Rights and learn about what you can expect as a Saint Mary's Hall parent.
The core values of Saint Mary’s Hall are those values which form the foundation on which we perform work and conduct ourselves. They affect how we interact with each other, and which strategies we employ to fulfill our school’s mission. To learn more about our core values as explained by members of the Saint Mary's Hall community, we invite you to read these essays that were featured in the Spring 2013 issue of our all-school magazine, The Shield.
The Honor Code
Students at Saint Mary's Hall abide by an Honor Code that governs the ethical and moral conduct of our community. The Honor Code was established to instill trust, honesty, integrity, and respect for oneself and others, and it allows us to maintain an environment of trust based on a balance between responsibility and freedom. In the Upper School, an Honor Council comprised of students and faculty is responsible for enforcing the Honor code.
