The Honor Court is comprised of a standing committee of Cadets, to include the JAG/Honor Captain. All members must distinguish themselves among their peers as young men of integrity. Each year, a non-voting freshman is chosen to be on the court as well as new upperclassmen, to replace graduating members. The court conducts all honor hearings.
Any teacher, staff member or student may report a violation of the Honor Code ("A Cadet will not lie, steal, cheat or tolerate those who do"). Students are expected to report violations to a teacher or directly to a member of the Honor Court. Members will refer all cases to the Honor Court moderator for consideration.
The JAG gathers all relevant statements and materials and will refer the situation to an Honor Court hearing, if he feels it appropriate. All interested parties must attend the scheduled hearing.
At the end of said hearing, the court votes in private as to whether there is culpability. If so, remediation measures are proposed to the Assistant Headmaster, who shall review and administer final adjudication.
I am a Benedictine College Preparatory Cadet I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, my country, my school and the Corps of Cadets.
I am loyal and patriotic. I am the future of the United States of America.
I do not lie, cheat or steal, and will always be accountable for my actions and deeds.
I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism.
I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body.
I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the Constitution and the American way of life.
May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed.
Every class session at Benedictine has a student class leader. And every class session at Benedictine is better as a result.
The class leader is selected by the teacher. He often is the student who has attained the highest level of rank relative to the rest the students in that particular class, though there is nothing to prevent a teacher from making that appointment based on other criteria. For instance, some teachers select class leaders on a rotating basis with the criteria being who is performing best, academically, in that class.
It is a role to be taken seriously. The class leader has the following duties:
- Take attendance daily and report it to the teacher
- Bring the class to attention at the start of class
- Lead the class in prayer or appoint a classmate to do so
- Take responsibility for maintaining classroom discipline in the event the teacher has to step out of the room
