Terms and Privacy Policy

The terms and privacy policy are reviewed by the Summit Christian Academy (SCA) administration annually; a notification is provided to currently enrolled families via email in the event of an update to the terms or privacy policy mid-year.

1. Application Terms & Agreements

The terms and privacy policy are reviewed and updated by the SCA administration annually. By re-enrolling or remaining enrolled after the terms or privacy policy is updated, you affirm your agreement to continue to be bound by these terms.

1.1 Statement of Faith

  • I understand that each subject within the SCA curriculum is Christian-based and agree to have my student fulfill SCA’s requirements.
  • I understand that Bible is a required course at SCA per the accreditation requirements of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). By enrolling our student(s) at SCA, we agree to follow the Biblical standards as outlined in the Family Handbook found on SCA’s website.

1.2 Academics

  • I understand that it is my responsibility to familiarize myself with the Family Handbook. Please note that the terms “parent” and “guardian” are used interchangeably at SCA.
  • I understand that I will be invited to register with the SCA Parents app (an online platform and mobile application for parents/guardians). I agree to check my SCA Parents app account at least once a week for school news and updates.
  • I understand the importance of my commitment and involvement to ensure success for my student, so I will make sure to create a focused learning environment at home where my student will be able to complete schoolwork without distractions.
  • I agree to check the email account that I provided on the enrollment form on a weekly basis for news from SCA regarding events, notices, and tuition, and I agree to respond as applicable.
  • I understand that students in grade 12 who meet SCA graduation requirements and comply with their state’s school requirements, in general, are accepted by public and private colleges and universities nationwide. I also understand that some colleges and universities have unique admission requirements, so it is my responsibility to contact colleges/universities that I am considering to determine what, if any, additional admission requirements exist.
  • I understand that SCA may highlight or showcase students with SCA’s stakeholders and/or for marketing purposes through internal or external communication, and that typically the student’s first name, last initial, and grade level would be used, except in cases where I provide written permission allowing for more personally identifiable information. An example includes a recording of a student spelling bee contest, which may include the winning student’s first name, last initial, grade level, and state of residence.

1.3 Attendance

  • I understand SCA will track my student’s school progress. I agree to notify the SCA office via phone in case of my student's absence as soon as possible.
  • I understand that, as an approved and accredited private online school, SCA abides by a truancy policy and as such reserves the right to withdraw a student who shows little or no progress within one quarter.
  • I understand that SCA reserves the right to deny enrollment to any student if the administration team believes that the family is unable to support their student’s academic needs sufficiently.

1.4 Withdrawal

  • I understand that in the event that I choose to withdraw my student from SCA for any reason and at any time, I am responsible for abiding by the withdrawal policy. I also understand that when I and/or another school request records from SCA, three to five business days may be required for the SCA office to prepare and send records to my student’s next school.
  • I understand that a report card/transcript will not be released until the withdrawal fee and tuition due are paid; this withdrawal policy applies if the withdrawal is initiated by myself or the SCA administration due to lack of payment, low academic progress, low attendance, and/or failure to comply with SCA policies.

1.5 Billing

  • I authorize SCA to electronically charge my debit card, credit card, or bank account for tuition and, if necessary, to electronically charge my debit or credit card to correct an erroneous transaction. I also understand that SCA may send the account to a debt collection agency if accounts are determined uncollectible.

1.6 Technical

All families need to opt into various forms of communication from SCA, including email, SMS text, and use of the SCA Parents app.

  • I understand that my student is expected to adhere to SCA’s online student behavioral policies as presented in the Family Handbook. I understand that if my student’s online or in-person activities pose a security risk to SCA or its students, SCA will take immediate action to disable their school accounts at which time a meeting will be arranged between the student, their parents/guardians, and the administration to discuss potential disciplinary actions to prevent such behavior.
