Faith Academy is open to anyone interested in securing a Christian education, from Kindergarten through Eighth grade. However, attendance at Faith Academy is not a right, it is a privilege. This privilege may be forfeited by any student who does not conform to the policies and spirit of the school. The Lord has not yet opened the doors, however, for us to work with the physically handicapped or the severely learning disabled child.
Faith Academy admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality or ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, admissions policies, athletic or other school-administered programs.
The administration reserves the right to make changes in policies, fees, programs, etc. as deemed necessary. Changes will be communicated as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
The following standards have been established for entrance into Faith Academy.
- Parents should be in agreement with our philosophy and goals and should be willing to actively support our educational program.
- The student must have a sincere desire for a Christian education, and he or she must be willing to submit to the standards and regulations of our school.
- The student must be of suitable age for the grade assigned. Children entering kindergarten must be five years of age (six if entering first grade) on/or before August 1st of any school year.
All incoming students will be expected to have an interview with a school official. Should the student’s score be on the grade level to which the student has been promoted, and then the student will be admitted to that grade. It is the policy of the school not to accept transfer students whose accomplishments or behavior have not been up to acceptable standards. Students whose current work is not satisfactory may be asked to transfer out. An assessment exam is required.
A student transferring from another school must be in good academic standing. Should the student’s accomplishments be below his grade level as evidenced by recent grade reports and/or standardized achievement test scores, the child may be admitted on a probationary basis, or placed in a lower grade better suited for the student’s achievement or denied admittance.
Re-enrollment applications will be sent home in early spring for the following school year. Parents who are re-enrolling their children must submit a re-enrollment application with their total enrollment payment to reserve a place for their children.
