SUA Honor Code
The SUA Honor Code is based on personal and academic honesty and integrity. The primary objective of the SUA Honor Code is to encourage and promote honorable and ethical behavior of all students. Violations of the honor code will be addressed by the Behavioral Academic Research Team (BART).
As a part of the SUA Honor Code, SUA does not condone a student using the work of another student and claiming it as his/her own. Doing so is considered a form of cheating. This shows a lack of personal integrity and confidence. Copying any assignment of another student is considered cheating.Students should neither give nor receive assistance on homework, quizzes, tests or exams except as authorized by their teacher. If a student is found to be cheating, the student will be given a grade of zero on their assignments and will be suspended one school day. All missed classwork, homework, tests, and quizzes assigned during suspension will receive a zero.
College Entrance Information
SUA is an AdvancED (SACS) Accredited High School; therefore, students will receive an accredited diploma. The SUA diploma is accepted by post-secondary institutions, but students must also meet additional college requirements to be fully accepted. Such requirements are ACT scores and GPA. Some universities require a foreign language. It is the responsibility of the SUA senior to check the requirements of the college(s) he/she may wish to attend. Our Vice Principal is available to assist with this information.
