Values

Camden Prep is characterized by a culture that is joyful, orderly, supportive, and focused on academic work. The guiding beliefs of our community include mutual care and respect. Discipline and order exist in a school when students are known and cared for by all of the faculty and staff and when their life within the school is meaningful to them. Given the sense of community within the school and the active engagement of students in their learning, there will be less opportunity for disruption and problems. The administrators and teachers strive to ensure that rules are fairly and consistently enforced.

Five core values – caring, respect, responsibility, courage, and justice – are at the heart of Camden Prep's community and represent the cornerstones of the school’s Code of Conduct. It is expected that all students will live by these values.

 

Caring

1. We take care of each other.

2. We help each other.  We notice when someone needs help and we lend a hand.

3. We do not hurt each other physically or emotionally.

Respect

1. We treat each person as valuable, worthy of greatness and goodness.

2. We accept all individuals for who they are.

3. We show our respect at all times for each other, for property, for differences, and for opinions different from our own.

4. We are honest with each other.


 

Responsibility

1. We believe we are the masters of our own destiny and that we have the power to control our lives and shape our future.

2. We are committed to the highest level of achievement: academic, social, and personal.  We recognize our strengths and try to improve on our weaknesses.

3. We participate fully in everything we do.  We do not do things halfway.


 

Courage

1. We show courage in the face of adversity.

2. We speak loud and proud.

3. We do what is right, even when doing the right thing is more difficult.


 

Justice

2. We get involved when members of the community are in trouble or need help.

3. We work to improve our community and our world.
