Honor Code

BFC Honor Code

The Bishop Foley Catholic High School Honor Code is established to ensure that students take responsibility for their own actions and thus to create an atmosphere free from suspicion. By means of the Honor Code, Bishop Foley's students practice moral leadership, accept personal responsibility, and develop strong character.

While the Honor Code is a part of our school as a total community, it is a special honor given to the students of Bishop Foley Catholic High School due to their desire to be part of this family and to be concerned for its wellbeing. At the heart of the Honor Code is respect for the dignity of the human person. Lying, cheating, stealing, and tolerating those who do are damaging to the student's moral virtue and to the reputation of the school. Taking responsibility for one's actions is vital to the maturity of each individual. The students of Bishop Foley Catholic High School are citizens of God's family, their own respective families, and our Bishop Foley Catholic family. The trust among all members of this family builds confidence in the overall school community and enables all to be grounded in Christ Jesus.

In light of this:

  • A Bishop Foley Catholic student always tells the truth. He or she is honest and cooperative with the administration, faculty, and fellow students, even when questioned about wrongdoing.

  • A Bishop Foley Catholic student has integrity. Any homework, reports, exams, tests or other graded or ungraded work is to be the sole work of the student whose name appears on that material. He/she does not claim another's work as his/her own without giving proper credit.

  • A Bishop Foley Catholic student does not steal. He/she does not take or use what belongs to another without being granted prior permission.

  • A Bishop Foley Catholic student upholds the Honor Code. Through charitable fraternal correction, he or she does not knowingly tolerate another student's violation of the Honor Code.

  • A Bishop Foley Catholic student upholds the Honor Code in all he or she does especially when using social media- texting, tweeting, Instagram, Youtube or Vine. Our actions and words should not be harmful to oneself, others or Bishop Foley Catholic.
