Agnes Scott College educates women to think deeply, live honorably and engage the intellectual and social challenges of their times. The Honor System is an integral part of this mission. It is the way of life that fosters the values of integrity, learning in community, personal responsibility, and academic freedom. Judicial procedures create educational opportunities for students’ understanding of these values. The Honor System is student‐led and thus provides leadership opportunities for students to educate their peers about the values of the Honor System and work to reinforce it on campus.
As stated in the Honor Pledge, the goal is for students, “To attain these ideals, I do therefore accept this Honor System as 
my way of life.”
