The intellectual and spiritual development of each student demands attendance and participation in all scheduled classes and mandatory chapel services.
Students should not regard these commitments casually; unexcused absences signal a disengagement from the core academic program as well as a disregard for the concerns and goals of the School.
Students who miss a class or chapel at any time during the year should expect the following consequences:
- First unexcused absence: Five marks and notification sent to advisor and parent.
- Second unexcused absence: Five marks, notification sent to advisor and parent, Saturday detention.
- Third unexcused absence: Five marks, notification sent to advisor, Saturday detention, a letter sent home from the Dean’s Office.
- Fourth unexcused absence: Five marks, notification sent to advisor and parent, Saturday detention, Residential and Academic Review with the Dean of Students and the Academic Advisor—Academic Warning.
- Fifth unexcused absence: All of the above and a separation from the community.
Subsequent unexcused absences will be taken into consideration when determining whether a student should remain at St. Andrew’s.
A student must request and receive permission from the Dean of Students or the weekend duty head before the weekend to miss Sunday chapel. Without explicit permission, a student’s absence will be considered unexcused.
