The Code of Character
In the 1960s, Landon students wrote an Honor Code to guide their actions and promote a community where a Landon man became known for his good word. In 2002, the School added a Civility Code to the core principles which govern our behavior as members of a community dedicated to the inclusion of all.
In 2008, Landon formally adopted a Code of Character, embracing both of these Codes, which commits us to make Landon a place where all are welcome, and where Respect and Honesty are our highest values. We recognize that, together, they form the foundation of true Brotherhood.
Text of The Code of Character
"Landon School expects its students to become young men of character and integrity – men who behave honorably in all of their actions and relationships with others.
"Respect drives our Civility Code.
"Honesty drives our Honor Code.
"As a member of the Landon community, I am expected to live by and model these virtues."
Students, faculty and administrators sign the Code of Character at the beginning of each school year to reaffirm this commitment to its principles.
