The first few pages are about the school's values. The school values Goodness and Nobility (the difference between these is not clear) and Academic Excellence and Well-Roundedness.
Here are the various sorts of people Alida can contact for help with various problems. There are like two pages of them.
She will be taking five courses. She should expect a half-hour of homework per course per day in ninth and tenth grade and 45 minutes in eleventh and twelfth grade. She can change her schedule in the first week of classes. She will be tracked into appropriate classes depending on her past performance at school. Her grades (on a scale from A to F which inexplicably skips E) will be sent to her parents at the end of each semester. If her grades are poor, she will be put on academic probation, and if they don't improve after that she will be expelled.
Alida must attend at least 20% of the classes for each course or she will fail the course.
Breakfast is from 7:00 to 8:30am; lunch from 11:30am to 1pm; dinner from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. Classes run from 8am to 2:30pm, with a break for lunch and a study hall. Study hours are from 8:00 to 10:00pm every day which precedes a school day, and she is expected to be studying in her dorm room or in a common room during study hours. All students are required to be in their rooms by 10:30pm. Lights out is 11pm. There are no classes on weekends, but the meals schedule is the same. On Friday and Saturday night, you have to be in your dorm by 11:30pm and lights out is midnight.
Meals are buffet-style. Good manners are required. Food, drink, and dishes may not be taken from the cafeteria.
Students are encouraged to take advantage of any of the many sports offered by Auradon Prep! Here is a long list. They are also encouraged to take advantage of the drama and music programs. The school organizes many volunteer opportunities, such as visiting the elderly and tutoring students in local schools and a service vacation to Morgandammerung where they build schools.
Students must wear clean, tasteful clothes which fully cover "body parts" (this is not elaborated upon) and are not see-through.
When using the Internet, students must not subvert network security, or distribute copyrighted material, or share confidential personal material about others, or access inappropriate content (the definition of "inappropriate" is also not elaborated upon), or send harassing, discriminatory, or offensive messages. All use during study hours and the school day must be academic. Students may only use smartphones for academic purposes during study hours and the school day, and smartphones are forbidden in the library or the dining hall.
No student is allowed in another student's room unless that student is present. Students are not permitted to replace the furniture, or have pets, or use furnishings for unintended purposes, or make modifications to their dorm rooms that can't be fixed, or place school furnishings on balconies, or enclose the balconies with fabric, or keep anything with a heating element in their dorm room, or enter each other's rooms through the balconies. Students are not allowed to have the door closed when a member of the opposite sex is in the room.
The school can search the room if there is reason to believe that there are illegal, dangerous, prohibited, or stolen items.
Visitors must check in, and need special permission to stay overnight.
If a student is concerned that someone else has a medical, mental health, or behavioral problem that they haven't told the school about, then they can tell the administration! They won't get in trouble for breaking the rules if they confess breaking the rules as part of telling the administration. The administration might talk to the student who's in trouble, tell their parents, ask the student to sign a behavioral contract agreeing to certain behavior, give the student medical or mental health care, or put the student on a medical leave of absence. Remember that the school is here to help you!
Students are NOT allowed to have any of this long list of medications in their room. They will have to get them from the school nurse.
Parents have complete access to everything about their children's medical records.
Here are various rules about the appropriate use of cars, motorcycles, bicycles, rollerskates, etc etc.
Here are various rules about getting permission to go off campus.
Here are some rules about fire safety.
Here are some rules about what to do in the event of an emergency. (This, of course, covers magical attack.)
The usual consequence for minor breaking of a rule (late to class, not studying during study hours, out of room after curfew) is an hourlong detention. If you break a major rule (unexcused absence from class, being in someone else's dorm room without them present, driving violations), you'll have a two-hour work period and be confined to campus for one Saturday. Severe rule-breaking includes leaving campus without permission, possessing a weapon, using alcohol or drugs, stealing, plagiarizing, cheating in class, hazing, harassing, threatening of physical harm, or assaulting others. In general, the school will do a disciplinary hearing about this and decide on an appropriate remedy, which may include probation or expulsion.
