The Honor Code communicates values we hold sacred, principles we seek to prioritize, and practices we commit to apply as we pursue honesty, integrity, and a lifetime of biblical discipleship.
The Urshan Honor Code is rooted in specific character values from Scripture and reflects the message of Micah 6:8,“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”
The Urshan Honor Code is the highest obligation of the entire Urshan Community. Every member of the Urshan Community is Honor Bound:
