A. The saturation of the school environment with God’s Word (John 8:31-32) and prayer (I Thessalonians 5:17).
B. A mature, gifted faculty. All SCS teachers are equipped and called by God to teach (Ephesians 4:11-12) and understand they will be held by Him to a higher standard (James 3:1) because they teach.
C. A maximum grade size of twelve students.
D. College preparatory standards and expectations. The small classes of SCS provide the best possible opportunity for a student to meet the school’s academic standards.
It is expected that each student at SCS will seek to glorify God with his best. The school year will be divided into two semesters and each semester will be divided into two quarters. Semester averages will be figured as follows: 1/3 value for each quarter and 1/3 value for the semester exam. Great weight is given to the semester exam since it is the best barometer of knowledge retention. SCS is a college preparatory school; as such it is not intended for everyone. Only those students who are serious about glorifying God and intend to impact the world after high school should seek to enroll at SCS.

“Whatever you do. . . do all to the glory of God.” I Corinthians 10:31 It is expected that every student at CPA will strive to do his best for the expressed purpose of glorifying God. Since this school is a college preparatory academy, students whose grade point average falls below a 2.0 or who receive two F’s at the end of a semester will be placed on academic probation for the following semester. At the end of this probation period if the student has not raised his grade point average to a 2.0 with no more than one F, he will not be allowed to remain at CPA. Such a student can be considered for re-enrollment following two semesters in another school in which he has met the current academic admission standards.
Attendance and Tardy Policies
Excellent attendance is important if a child is to receive the maximum blessings of his educational experience. Absences are to be avoided as much as possible. To this end parents are encouraged to make a student’s appointments (medical, dental, etc.) outside the hours of school. When it is necessary for a student to be absent, a written excuse must be presented in the school office on the day of the student’s return. An absence without a written excuse is automatically deemed unexcused. No student will be allowed more than seven absences (excused and unexcused absences combined) per semester in any class except under extreme circumstances with the approval of the administrator. Generally, a student is allowed one (1) day for each day of excused absence to turn in make-up work. It is the responsibility of the student to secure from the teacher any makeup work, as well as approach the teacher to establish a time for makeup exams. When a student is tardy to school, he shall report to the office prior to going to class. A student is deemed tardy the moment the clock strikes 8:00 a.m. The office will determine whether a tardy is excused or unexcused. After the third unexcused tardy in a quarter, a parent of the child will be expected to set an appointment with the school administrator to discuss the matter. Persistent tardiness may result in suspension or even expulsion. Each unexcused tardy or unexcused absence will result in a 2% reduction in quarterly grades.
