St. Paul's Student Orientation
Transcript of St. Paul's Student Orientation
Every Upper School student must participate in athletics and extracurricular activities. In his four years, each student must participate in a minimum of eight (8) school-sponsored activities, of which five (5) must be made up of full athletic participation on a school-sponsored team or full participation in the troupe or crew of the fall musical. Students are encouraged to surpass the requirements. Because the possible combinations of activities and athletics are as varied as our students, each boy’s level of participation is subject to review by the Upper School Dean of Students and the Head of the Upper School.
Campus parking is in extremely short supply. All students must respect space assignments and park only in those areas designated for student use. All underclassmen will park on the lower lots adjacent to the athletic fields. Some seniors may be assigned spaces, based on availability, on the upper campus. Students may not drive their cars on the main body of campus at any time during the regular school day, and all cars must be registered with the Upper School Office. If a student’s car is not registered and his vehicle is on campus, he will receive a detention.
Failure to comply with driving and parking location regulations will result in revocation of the on-campus driving privilege for one month for a first offense and for the remainder of the academic year for the second offense.
Parking and Driving
All students bring laptops everyday and must check their school e-mail accounts once a day at least.
Headphones may only be worn in conjunction with laptop use.
Students may only use their laptops for academic purposes during the school day.
No personal electronic devices on their person from the time they arrive at school until the last bell.

The Dress Code
The Honor Code helps bring to life the School’s mission to develop responsibility for one’s self and others. Learning to conduct oneself in an honorable manner is an integral part of a St. Paul’s education. Students are expected to uphold the Honor Code, which states:
As St. Paul’s gentlemen, we do not lie, cheat, or steal; and we rely on each other to uphold our honor.
Disciplinary decisions in matters of honor will be at the
discretion of the School Principal and Headmaster.
