Maclay School has an Honor Code because years ago, a group of concerned students held meetings, examined Honors Codes from other schools and colleges, wrote the Maclay Honor Code, and planned the Honor Council. A few years after the Honor Code was implemented, in fall of 2000, at the suggestion of our Upper School student leaders, Maclay began a new tradition. In 2015, a group of students and faculty revised the Honor Code for a more simply meaning that all students, K-12, could understand and follow. In September, a formal ceremony for Upper School students is held and all new students and teachers sign a roll to indicate their participation in the Maclay Honor Code system. The Honor Roll Book has become a part of Maclay's tradition and is displayed in our library for future generations to see.
