Conserve School students and staff live, learn, work, and play in an intentional, residential community. Healthy community is built, in part, on the commitment of each person to live ethically, and in a way which engenders the trust of others. As such, applicants are asked to demonstrate a record of positive, appropriate behavior at school, at home, and in other aspects of their lives. Applicants with a history of significant or repeated misbehavior, including use of illegal substances, will be be considered inappropriate for admission to Conserve School.
In consideration of these expectations, applicants are asked to sign an ethics pledge that asserts that they:
- Currently abstain from tobacco, alcohol, and other illicit drugs, and pledge to continue to do so through the period of their enrollment at Conserve School.
- Pledge to live by the values of the Conserve Code: compassion, honesty, justice, respect, and responsibility.
- Pledge to communicate their whereabouts as required by Conserve School.
- Pledge to refrain from actions that would endanger themselves or others.
