Student Creed

The community of scholars at The Frederick Douglass Academy is dedicated to personal and academic excellence. Choosing to live in the communtity obligates each member to a code of civilized behavior.

Allegiance to these ideals requires each Frederick Douglass Academy student to refrain from and discourage behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves.

As a Frederick Douglass Academy student:

I will practice
personal and academic integrity;

I will respect
the rights and property of others;

I will discourage
bigotry, while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas and opinions;


I will demonstrate
concern for others, their feelings, and their needs for conditions that support their work and development.


Adopted from the Morehouse College Student Creed.
