Spiritual maturity is expected from every student.  Students are expected to conduct themselves in agreement with the teachings of the Bible.  Conduct by a student deemed immoral or unethical will be considered grounds for immediate dismissal from the school.  Honesty, integrity and respect for others are of utmost importance.  Every area of the student’s life should be structured around actively pursuing the Lord.  Scripture reading, devotions and prayer should be a daily discipline and faithful church attendance is considered mandatory.

Withdrawal Procedure
A student desiring to withdraw from the program must notify the Administrative Office in writing of their intention to withdraw with the effective date of their withdrawal.  An official withdrawal form must be properly completed, signed by the student and filed with the Administrative Office. A phone call or verbal agreement does not constitute an official withdrawal.  Failure to adhere to our withdrawal procedures may result in forfeiture of the student’s right to refund.
