Since teaching a student from a Biblical point of view will be impossible without the proper environment at home, we assert that a parent must be…
A member in “good standing” of a Bible believing New Testament church.
Actively involved in a ministry of a Bible believing New Testament church.
Faithful to the regular services of the church as well as special meetings of the church.
Actively creating a godly atmosphere at home by providing godly music, morally uplifting viewing material and putting great emphasis on good books; rejecting all worldly styles of music such as Rock and Roll, popular Country and Contemporary Christian Music; rejecting the immorality of “Hollywood” found in the vast majority of movies in theaters, videos and programs on television (II Cor. 5:17). A godly atmosphere is not nurtured by the deceptions of alcohol, and other mind altering drugs, or tobacco, either. God’s wisdom would lead us in the opposite direction (Prov. 20:1; I Cor. 6:19, 20).
Willingly involved in the educational process of their child evidenced by:
Attending ALL Parent/Teacher meetings
Ensuring homework completion
Supporting decisions of the teacher and administration
Volunteering time to the school ministry when available and needed
Supporting any disciplinary actions of administration in reference to the child
Attending CBA functions such as Kindergarten and senior graduation ceremonies when not in conflict with another home church service schedule.
Completing a parent/child interview with the CBA admissions committee.
In full agreement with the doctrinal statement of CBC/CBA and willing to sign a statement of endorsement to that fact.
We also assert that for a child to be admitted to Calvary Baptist Academy they must:
Have a written personal testimony of salvation by the age of thirteen years old. Each secondary student will be asked to provide this at the beginning of each school year.
Be faithful to all of the regular services of the home church as well as youth activities, and special meetings of the church.
Exhibit acceptable social behavior.
Display a positive attitude toward CBA in the interview process and throughout the school year.
Be of reasonably good health and intelligence. Although the faculty is well-trained, we cannot adequately address the wide variety of special needs that many children face. Our limitations would be discussed during the interview process.
Be four years old by September 1st to enter K4, be five years old by September 1st to enter K5, and six years old by September 1st in order to enter first grade.
Speak the English language and be able to take care of personal needs.
Withdrawal from school before the end of the school year must be made in person through the school office. All tuition payments will continue until parents and students have completed the official withdrawal form and delivered it to the school office. Transcripts and other records cannot be released to another school until all bills are paid and a “Record Release” form endorsed by the parent or guardian is received. The student(s) should attend classes until the proper form is completed and submitted to the office. Any unexcused absences will result in zeros for that day.
IN THE EVENT OF A WITHDRAWAL, TRANSFER, OR EXPULSION, THE PARENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR FULL PAYMENT OF TUITION AND OTHER FEES. FULL PAYMENT OF TUITION AND OTHER FEES MUST BE MADE THROUGH THE END OF THE CALENDAR MONTH. THE SCHOOL RESERVES THE RIGHT TO WITHHOLD REPORT CARDS AND STUDENT RECORDS UNTIL TUITION AND OTHER FEES HAVE BEEN PAID IN FULL. BY SIGNING THE STATEMENT OF COOPERATION, YOU ARE AUTHORIZING THE SCHOOL TO WITHHOLD REPORT CARDS AND OTHER RECORDS UNTIL TUITION AND OTHER FEES HAVE BEEN PAID IN FULL.
