I. GENERAL DISCIPLINE GUIDELINES

At Le Châtelard, a healthy discipline is a means for the accomplishment of the student’s integral formation. It is never an end in itself. The school asks for support from the parents to help their daughter see the connection between inner discipline and formation of habits and virtues.

The school relies on the parents to motivate their daughter and to help them see the values acquired through discipline. If the student feels a division between her parents and the school in anything referred to in the rules and regulations, the formation becomes increasingly difficult. For this reason we ask parents for their valuable support in what refers to rules and procedures of the school.

Le Châtelard forms its students with respect and sensibility in a family environment that is conscious of their needs. In addition to the rules of the school, it will ensure the growth and maturity, independence, courtesy, respect and personal organization of each student.

Each student is identified with the ideal of becoming an Integral Woman.

It is expected that each student shows an interest in achieving her own personal maturity, and be willing to wholly use the means, methods and opportunities that the school provides, to become an integral woman.

It is expected that the students behave correctly and be properly attired both inside and outside the school facilities.

Le Châtelard offers a Junior High and a High School program. Both are independent and have their own dynamics, rules and discipline, according to the age and personal maturity of its participants. Students of each program are expected to be in the activities of their own program at all times.

Upon request, the school will supply a letter of good behaviour as long as the average grade for discipline is higher than 7.5 and the school agreement.

In keeping with the dignity of the human person, our students are required to show respect and refinement both in their words and gestures, towards the entire staff of Le Châtelard and among themselves. They are expected to use a correct and distinguished vocabulary.

II. ACADEMIC RULES AND REGULATIONS

1) HUMAN REPORT CARD

 

The school uses a discipline grade to measure the student’s external behaviour and assimilation of the norms and principles which are to be followed by all students.

2) GRADE REPORT

 

The academic year is divided into two semesters. Each semester is divided into two periods (two months each).

For each subject, the student will receive her grades that are as follows:
