Discipline is considered the foundation of learning in all SABIS® Network schools. Recognizing that fact, SABIS® developed its own Code of Conduct, which is the behavioral mainframe by which each school will carry on its day-to-day operations. The Code reflects academic standards and the right for every student to learn in a non-threatening environment. The Code further reflects the school's desire to protect each individual's right to deal with violations of safety issues through consequences. SABIS® sees the implementation of such a code as a necessary element of providing a positive school experience for everyone and ensuring that behavior standards are met consistently throughout the community.
Creating high behavioral expectations at The Academy not only leads to a safer school, but also enables all students to feel welcome and safe to focus on learning. Academy students and parents will sign a contract detailing their respective responsibilities.

- Burgundy or White polo shirts
- Brown or Black dress shoes
- Sneakers (especially on Gym day)
- Belts are required for boys Grades 1+ and optional for girls (Black or Brown belts only)
