Hamden Hall Country Day School, an independent, college preparatory, co-educational PreSchool through Grade 12 day school, fosters the individual growth of every student. We challenge students to develop a strong sense of personal integrity, social responsibility, and a global perspective, while preparing them for demanding academic programs at the collegiate level.
Integrity and Responsibility are words that embody the moral and ethical foundation of the Hamden Hall School. The Honor Code is the structure that defines and promotes these values within the School community. It is composed of two parts: an Honor Pledge and an Honor Contract, and all students will be expected to abide by this code. It states:
"As a member of the Hamden Hall community, I pledge my honesty, academic integrity, sportsmanship, and stewardship, and I expect others to be responsible and to do the same."
To reaffirm their pledge, students will print 'HH Honor Pledge' and sign their names on all in-class exams, quizzes, and applicable take-home work. Teachers will be responsible for clarifying specific class and department expectations. By signing the pledge, students affirm their academic integrity as defined in the Honor Contract below.
