Drugs aren't a big part of life at Agnes. However, there is some recreational use of marijuana as well as alcohol, and there is some abuse of prescription ADD medication. Overall, though, drug use isn't an obvious thing, nor is it a crucial part of Agnes life. The students do drink, but there's no pressure put on those who don't drink. There are rules that regulate student behavior in regards to alcohol use. If a student is drunk and disorderly, she will be subject to either police enforcement or disciplinary action from the school (or both). 

For a student's first offense, there is a fine that ranges from $50 to $100. She will also be required to do 10 to 15 hours of community service and turn in a 250-word essay on a subject of Judicial Board's choosing. If the student is underage, her parents will be notified of her behavior in a letter. Subsequent violations include fines of up to $500, mandatory alcohol awareness, and expulsion. Agnes takes drug and alcohol policy violations very seriously because it's a community that strives to pursue a life of honor and integrity.
