Academic Honesty

Plagiarism
“Plagiarism is a specific form of cheating. A student who takes the ideas or works of others and passes them off as his or her own is considered to be plagiarizing. An inclusive list of possible forms of plagiarism is located in the Humanities Department. A plagiarized paper will earn a zero, and the student will be expected to redo the assignment correctly. The goal is for the student to learn from his or her mistake. If a student continues to plagiarize, he or she may fail the course, and in the Upper School, will go in front of the Judicial Board. Repeated offenses may result in expulsion or the inability to reenroll in the School.”  — from the Student Handbook
