    The Academy of Richmond County is a place where learning and knowledge are based on the inquiry cycle of action, reflection, and understanding, and the core values of respect, excellence, accountability, consideration, and honesty. We expect our students to internalize the importance of academic honesty, take responsibility for their actions and learning, and strive for continuous improvement of themselves and our community. We understand that part of our collective duty is to prepare our students for the rigors, principles, and expectations of universities and employers. We further understand that the internalization of the principles of academic honesty is a process and that students will make mistakes as they learn.

    Students in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme at the Academy of Richmond County are expected to internalize and maintain the highest standards of academic integrity. The IB Programme is designed to provide a quality education as well as promote integrity, respect, and perseverance, all of which are essential to becoming principled, lifelong learners and productive members of the community. With this goal in mind, the academic honesty team has developed this policy.
