This Code defines what we hope every adult and young man affiliated with Blue Ridge School to be and to do. It includes the School’s Honor Code, and encompasses the core values of our community. Our Code is posted in every classroom and throughout the campus to inspire the community to always do right in thought and in action.
CODE OF CONDUCT
The Golden Rule
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
I will be honest in all my interactions with others. I will not lie, cheat or steal, nor will I tolerate these actions by others.
I will respect myself and others. I will respect others’ property and privacy. I will play by both the letter and spirit of the rules. My words and actions will show respect for those in leadership positions, as well as my peers.
I will take responsibility for my actions, rather than make excuses or blame others. When I fall short, I will learn from my mistakes and try again.
I will stand up for my beliefs. I will do what I know to be right, regardless of the consequences or what others do or think.
I know that nothing worthwhile can be achieved without sacrifice. I will not fear failure but will embrace challenges and persevere through adversity to achieve my dreams. I will never quit or give up.
I will work to develop healthy habits of mind, body and spirit. I will not use illegal drugs or other harmful substances.
At Blue Ridge School and beyond, I will help others even when it requires personal sacrifice.
My son and nephew both attended Blue Ridge which provided a top class education in a beautiful setting. The boys were well prepared for college and were accepted into some of the top universities across America. They come from all races and all the continents. The Fishburne Learning Center is ranked among the best in the nation and the faculty members live on campus and work hand-in-hand with parents. There is a great rapport in this very vibrant community!
