  • Covenant of Community Life

    Covenant of Community Life and Honor System

     “You will be for me a kingdom priests and a holy nation.” (Exod. 19:6)

    “Speak to the entire assembly Israel and say to them: Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.” (Lev 19:2)

    “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1Pet 2:9)

    ACTS is an international school with a rich heritage of service as a Christian educational institution in the evangelical tradition. As such we encourage students to willingly conform to the standards of conduct that is compatible with what the Bible sets out.

    AIGS students are encouraged to live on things that are “true, noble, right, pure, lovely and honorable.” (Phil 4:8)

    Actions such as drunkenness, profane language, cult involvement, cheating, plagiarism, pornography, breaking of the biblical marital principles and sexual relationships, and any other acts that disgrace the Christian community will be subject to counseling and disciplinary action.

    For instance, according to AIGS Academic Regulations, the student who is caught cheating or plagiarizing will be subject to disciplinary action for the first instance and expulsion for the second instance. Thus, students are asked to affirm the following statement as the AIGS Honor System for all examinations and any individual and group papers and may be asked to sign this pledge on the cover or first page of examinations:

    “I pledge my honor that I have neither given nor received any assistance – verbal, written, or electronic – on this examination beyond that specifically permitted by the instructor in charge.”

    Students are asked to write out and to sign this pledge at the end of every paper:

    “I understand and have not violated the AIGS/ACTS’s position on plagiarism.”
    The AIGS covenant of community life is set not for the sake of punishment, but to encourage students to mature in the fullness of Christ in our vision to minister the body of Christ as the light and salt of the world.
  • Fellowship


    The AIGS community promotes outings, dining, food festivals, church visits, and spiritual retreats which help its members draw closer to God with other members of the ACTS community. Every student is encouraged to share both his and her personal, communal, and global concerns so that the entire AIGS body can edify its members for one another.
