It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic programs, or other school administered programs.

The Ashford Academy Board of Directors recognizes fully the constitutional rights of students enrolled in its school. The board recognizes equally, however, its obligation to establish policy to student behavior and discipline which assures that a proper atmosphere for learning will be maintained at school.
All students at Ashford Academy are charged with the responsibility to conduct themselves in a manner appropriate to good citizenship. Student conduct shall be founded on the basic concept of respect, consideration for the rights of others, and applicable laws.
The Board believes that the kind of discipline preferable in a democratic society is that typified by self-discipline. It considers self-discipline as a learning process whereby the individual progressively learns to develop habits of self-control and recognizes his own responsibilities to society. Behavior and discipline policies shall, therefore, demonstrate recognition both of individual student constitutional rights and of the paramount needed for maintaining a proper atmosphere for learning within each school.
