A Valued Education since 1959

"On my honor as a student of Father Lopez Catholic High School,

I pledge to pursue academic excellence with honor and integrity."

Father Lopez Catholic High School strives to instill in its students respect for Catholic values in the belief that these values will contribute to their physical and spiritual well-being.  Academic honesty, integrity, and a sense of honor are Catholic values and are essential to the learning process.  Students who violate this Honor Code are being dishonest to themselves and unfair to students who pursue academic excellence honestly.

Violations Examples of lack of academic integrity include such things as, but are not limited to, the following:

Copying another person's work (homework, quiz, test, project, paper, or other assignments).
Allowing someone else to copy your work (homework, quiz, test, project, paper, or other assignments).
Using or possessing a cheat sheet or other unauthorized materials during a test/quiz.
Using another's work as one's own (plagiarism) including cutting and pasting materials.
Borrowing a report or paying another to do your work.
Using electronic devices to transmit information during or after a test/quiz or any assignment.
