Commitment to Student Well-Being

There is no higher priority for Phillips Academy than the safety and well-being of our students. Guided by our shared community values and the expectation of respect for self and others, we strive to foster a supportive and healthy learning environment that nurtures each student’s personal growth and intellectual development. Consistent with our commitment to student safety and well-being, the Academy's General Expectations of Behavior constitute our Code of Conduct for employees.
