Honor Code


Franklin Classical School is a community of individuals who understand the benefit of committing to a love of God and one another. Our Honor Code is a covenant among our community that calls for sound judgment, self discipline, self confidence, good citizenship, and strong moral character in a Christian academic environment. To establish such standards at FCS, the school requires students to adhere to the Honor Code which serves as a guide for spiritual and moral accountability among the student body.

FCS Honor Code—(Romans 13:8-14)

Attendance at Franklin Classical School is a great privilege. And like all privileges, it comes with certain responsibilities. I, therefore, personally accept each of the following Christian responsibilities:

To God Almighty:

I will seek to honor the Lord in all that I think, say, and do (Deut. 26: 17).

I will submit myself to the authority of His grace and His commands (2 Tim. 3:16-17).

I recognize that my appearance and behavior reflects on Him as much as on me (I Cor. 10:31).

To my parents:

I will attempt to honor my parents in everything I think, say, and do (Ex. 20:12).

I will seek to learn all that I can from them (Eph. 6:1-3).

I acknowledge that I cannot receive what I need in life or godliness without them (Ps. 78: 1-8).

To my church:

I will submit to all the ecclesiastical authorities God has placed over me (Titus 2:1-15).

I will make worship, discipleship, and spiritual growth a priority in my life (Gal. 2:20).

I will attempt to be an ambassador of Christ and His Church wherever I am (Mtt. 28:19-20).

To my teachers:

I will demonstrate respect, attentiveness, gratitude, and obedience to my teachers (Heb. 13:1).

I will seek to do all the work I have been assigned with diligence and integrity (Eph. 5:8-17).

I will do my utmost to learn as much and achieve as much as I possibly can (Phil. 4:8-9).

To my classmates:

I will honor and respect the time, work, and feelings of my fellow students (Rom. 12:9-18).

I will try to model honesty, integrity, kindness, and modesty in my relationships (Phil. 2:3-7).

I realize that disturbances affect everyone at school and will thus strive for peace (Eph. 4:1-6).

I, therefore, affirm my personal and covenantal commitment to uphold these Christian responsibilities realizing that I will be able to enjoy the privileges of FCS only so long as I fully maintain this commitment—by the bounteous grace and according to the merciful providence of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
