The Honor Council exists as an accountability measure for the student by the student body.
In February 2012, Dr. Littlejohn spoke in Chapel declaring a culture reset at Trinity. As part of the renewed focus on preserving the merits of Trinity, it became apparent that the community would benefit from a body that promotes self-governance. Students were tasked with nominating fellow classmates for the inaugural Honor Council. Students elected faculty supervisors, and the Honor Council was created. The Honor Council then met once a week to write the Trinity Honor Code. The code was created by the students, reflected upon, and approved by the administration. The Honor Code was then presented to the student body at an Upper School Retreat via a reading during the end-of-retreat ceremony. All students and faculty in the Upper School have signed the Honor Code, committing to uphold its tenets. Since that time, the Honor Council has been meeting weekly for accountability. Teachers and students are encouraged to send issues to the Honor Council when violations of the Honor Code are observed or brought to their attention. All issues should be brought to the attention of the Faculty Advisors. The culture is changing; it’s getting better.
