Summit Christian Academy (SCA) assists parents in providing a Christian education for their children. The primary basis for admission to the program is a parental commitment to accept their biblical mandate to train their children. Since the SCA School Board believes that education is a scriptural mandate, admission is open only to children whose parents are committed to Christian values. In addition, the following policy considerations will be applied when evaluating each family for admission of their child(ren):
- At least one parent must subscribe to the Statement of Faith.
- Parents must view Christian education as a religious conviction.
- At least one parent must be present at seminars, orientations, and parent-teacher conferences (except in the case of exchange students, F-1).
All school policies apply equally to all SCA families. Students are enrolled as space permits.
Each student must be in good standing with the previous school attended (i.e., passing grades and a good behavior record). A student with poor academic performance and/or behavior problems will be placed on probation for one quarter. If results are improved, the student will be taken off of probation and be officially enrolled at SCA.
Secondary students (grades 6-12) must commit to their willingness to attend SCA verbally and in writing, and they must openly attest to their willingness to abide by all the procedures and rules of SCA.
Students with learning disabilities will be evaluated carefully, with consideration of the type of disability, severity of the disability, and the capacity of SCA faculty to accommodate that disability.
SCA's mission involves working with the parents in the student’s Christian education, and so parents are expected to be partners in nurturing their children and to agree to the following statement:
- "As a parent I agree to support the school with my prayers and with a positive attitude. Complaints or negative comments will be shared ONLY with the teacher, administrator, or person involved and NOT with my child or other people, following the Matthew 18 principle."
During the registration period, an appointment for a new family interview and student entrance test will be made through the local school administration. This is a meeting where the goals, program, and commitment of the school will be presented.
After the interview and entrance testing and reviewing the previous school’s report cards/records, the admission committee will determine whether or not the student is accepted for enrollment.
Within a week after the initial interview, parents will be notified by the SCA office regarding the principal's decision to accept or deny the student's enrollment.
If a student is accepted, a fully completed and signed application form must be returned to the local school office with all registration fees paid in full by the date established on the acceptance notification.
Returning families should:
- Attend the Information Night.
- Fill out the re-enrollment package (signatures are required by both parents/guardians)
- Bring it to the SCA office and pay the re-enrollment fee per student.
- Review the Family Handbook.
- Schedule an appointment with the SCA office with any questions or concerns.
