We believe in the Godly principles that support the foundation of our school while at the same time recognizing the need for governing rules and regulations.  We also believe that Charlotte United Christian Academy students are committed to an environment of honor and are willing to do everything possible to prevent violations against honor and integrity.  Attendance at C.U.C.A. is a privilege, and like all privileges, it comes with certain responsibilities and obligations.  All students at C.U.C.A. have an obligation to refrain from lying, cheating, and stealing.

  • Lying is defined as the giving of a false statement known to be false by the person making it and/or the deliberate deception about academic work.
  • Cheating is defined as the act of deception or fraud resulting in the representation of someone else’s work as one’s own or aiding another student in such practices. Cheating includes, but is not limited to, copying during a test, copying homework to be represented as your own, copying from notes without the permission of the owner, copying from books or other materials without permission, or improper citation of sources.
  • Stealing is the action of taking or borrowing another’s property without stated permission on each occasion.

It is with those thoughts in mind that an Honor Code has been established at Charlotte United Christian Academy, the purpose of which is to remind each student of their responsibility to build and maintain a strong system of integrity, both spiritually and academically.

In addition to the above personal responsibilities, C.U.C.A. students in the Upper School will write and sign the following Honor Pledge on all quizzes, tests, and any other work so designated by the teacher.

“On my honor, I pledge that I have neither given nor received any help on this work.”

I affirm my personal commitment to uphold these Christian responsibilities.
                                                                                                      

Character Standards

Charlotte United Christian Academy

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – which is your spiritual worship.  Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect will.” (Romans 12:1-2)

Because of the cross and who we are in Christ, Charlotte United Christian Academy, has set forth and established the following Biblical instructions to protect and uphold the honor of our school.
