Yes. Freedom of Expression is a core value and principle of the College. We expect high schools to enforce the same values. We seek to admit students who embrace our commitment to vigorous, respectful debate of opposing viewpoints and effective dialogue on the most controversial issues.
In cases of a student self-reporting (as required on our application) prior conduct sanctions of any nature, we follow our normal protocol to review the matter and consider the student's overall character, the reason for the conduct sanction, and the student's explanation of their behavior. In this specific, hypothetical context, the College would be further guided by our core commitment to the freedom of expression.
