Commitment

By becoming a member of the Hebron Academy Community, you agree to abide by the school’s official policies and guidelines and will rise to the standards set forth by the school.  Understanding that all actions must be conducted with the utmost integrity, and that you must do your part as a member of a community that welcomes and supports individuality, respects differences, and values each person’s positive contributions.

Service

Hebron Academy's Community Action initiative encourages students to understand their responsibility to take active roles in supporting their community, within and beyond the campus. During the school year, students, faculty, administration, and staff participate in various fundraising projects for those in need in the local and global communities.

Hebron's community service program takes several forms. Each year we have two days where the school reaches out to the local community to offer assistance by volunteering at organizations like the Good Shepherd Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, local farms and community gardens and the local elementary school. Throughout the year Hebron students engage the community and provide assistance wherever the need and opportunity arises. Weekly trips are made to the local Hebron Station School, providing after school activities, culture and academic assistance. Embracing this dedication to service is the foundation of student initiatives both on and off campus. 
 

Community Commitment Is:

Respecting rights and property of others, and maintaining an environment of freely exchanged ideas in a respectful and considerate manner in the dorms and classrooms and on the playing fields.
 
Respecting the diverse backgrounds of other students and living harmoniously with tolerance and understanding. At no point will any student contribute to another person’s discomfort because of their religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social or economic backgrounds.
 
Being honest in all matters. Integrity is of the utmost importance. Every student will conduct themselves honestly regarding academics, awareness and respect for others’ belongings, and in interactions with their peers.
 
Practicing habits that are healthy. Not using or possessing of tobacco, chewing tobacco, alcohol or drugs. Having personal relationships that are appropriate and positive.
 
An understanding of the primary role at Hebron as a fully invested student. Everyone should be prompt, fully prepared and meet all commitments. Full  engagement in all areas of school life is essential to the Hebron experience.
 
 

Leadership

We believe teaching students to be leaders is a critical part of their development and how to discover their voice to affect positive change. We show them the value of taking on roles of responsibility. Formal and informal leadership opportunities exist every day and are supported by faculty and staff. Hebron allows for a student-led feeling in school meetings, dormitories, classrooms, and on athletic teams.
 
PROCTORS Proctors act as liaisons between students and faculty. They are expected to be role models and uphold the rules and expectations of the school. Proctors are chosen from members of the rising junior class at the end of their Junior year. Students who represent the qualities of leadership at Hebron are chosen through a school-wide application process. See our 2015-2016 Proctors here.

The five qualities of student leadership considered in proctor selection are:
Appreciation of Hebron Values
Exhibits School Spirit
Leads by Example
Communicates Effectively
Shows Responsibility and Maturity

CLASS OFFICERS Each class elects officers during the Fall trimester. Officers lead their class in activities focusing on three goals: Spirit, Service, and Fundraising. All class officers meet monthly as a council to discuss their class progress towards achieving these goals. Funds raised are used for class activities and eventually for the senior class gift. Traditionally, the senior class president delivers the commencement address.

GREEN KEY COORDINATORS Green Key Coordinators are juniors or seniors who have expressed interest and acumen in the area of providing student tours and being school ambassadors.  Students apply through the Office of Admission to take on this leadership role in the spring of their sophomore or junior year.  Their responsibilities include organizing the many prospective campus visits that occur over the course of the year.
