We commit ourselves to integrity, kindness, purity, and self-control; and to continual growth in scholarship, leadership, and service.

Therefore, as members of the Cedarville community, we regularly affirm our commitment to the Cedarville Covenant with this pledge: We will love God and others, live with integrity and pursue excellence in all we do.
