Scholar Creed


The community of scholars at Frederick Douglass Academy II is dedicated to personal and academic excellence.

Choosing to live in the community obligates each member to a code of civilized behavior.

Allegiance to these ideals requires each Frederick Douglass Academy II scholar to refrain from and discourage behaviors, which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves.

As a Frederick Douglass Academy II scholar:

I will practice
personal and academic integrity;

I will respect
the rights and property of others;

I will discourage
bigotry, while striving to learn from differences in
people, ideas and opinions; and

I will demonstrate
concern for others, their feelings and their need
for conditions that support their work and development.


- Adapted from the Morehouse College Scholars’ Creed. Confirmed May 2004.


Every Scholar is to meet the following expectations.
