About Us

Student Code of Conduct

As we grow together in Christian community, we strive with God's help, to cultivate habits and behaviors that honor God, show respect for one another and support a positive learning environment. Richmond Prep's standards flow from principles given to people in God's Word. Consequently, we believe these standards are valid for Richmond Prep students at all times and in all places, not just during school hours. Students, faculty and administration are asked to subscribe annually to these standards.

Richmond Prep Community Member Expectations

Honoring God 

I will honor God by striving to serve Him, pursuing deeper knowledge about His nature and kingdom, and participating in the spiritual life of the school. I will use God's name carefully.

Honoring Teachers 

I will show respect for my teachers by giving them my attention, constructively participating in class, and following their directions. I will pursue excellence in all I do, faithfully meeting my obligations and completing my assignments to the best of my ability. I will tell the truth. In my academic work I will not cheat or turn in another person's work calling it my own. I will not copy and plagiarize information from the internet or any other source.

Honoring Myself 

I will show respect for my body by taking care of it in the following ways: 

  1. I will not smoke or drink alcohol while I am under age. I will not use illegal drugs.
  2. I will uphold biblical standards of morality concerning sexual activity. I will work to understand how to apply the Bible's teaching about sexual behavior to my own life and then prayerfully attempt to obey this teaching. I will not participate in public displays of affection at any school events.
