Integrity means, at root, to be whole. We must each work toward self-knowledge, self-awareness; the beliefs and values that spring from this should be reflected in our behavior. 廉正 requires honesty in our academic work and our personal lives; such honesty is crucial for nurturing individual relationships and a community of trust. As we build integrity, we must develop the ability to stand up for what is right.
Respect involves treating oneself and others with dignity. This includes the acceptance, perhaps even the celebration, of our differences. Respect also includes taking responsibility for our commitments to ourselves and to others, as well as treating all people in a fair, nonprejudicial manner. 尊重 should extend beyond the Choate community and characterize our interactions with all individuals.
同情 means having a true understanding of, and sympathy for, the condition and needs of others. This requires developing an awareness of what is happening in the lives of other people. Such awareness forms the foundation for, and encouragement of, acts of generosity and support for those in need.
Nearly every week throughout the year, Choate students, faculty, and staff come together for School Meeting. It is a time for us celebrate, reflect, and share the accomplishments, hardships, and efforts of our community members and as a whole. A highlight for many are our Choate Talks – personal reflections shared with the community.
Choate has a number of 音箱方案 that bring renowned thought leaders to campus to energize, educate, and expand student and faculty perspectives and to broaden conversations about important topics in the world and within our community.
