GENERAL INFORMATION

Who may attend: San Antonio Christian School welcomes applications from young people of all backgrounds whose principles and interests are in harmony with the ideals and standards of the school as expressed in this handbook. Such students will have the opportunity to enjoy the advantages of their own spiritual, intellectual, social and physical development. Membership in the Seventh-day Adventist church is not required, but it is understood that all who present themselves for admission, thereby pledge to observe the regulations of the school. San Antonio Christian School is not equipped to handle young people who have major behavioral, social or scholastic problems.

STATEMENT OF NONDISCRIMINATION

San Antonio Christian School has been established to provide high quality education in a spiritually nurturing atmosphere, in harmony with the philosophy and objectives of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The school welcomes all those who sincerely aspire to live according to its principles of Christian beliefs.

The faculty and staff is made up of devoted and caring Christian teachers who take an interest in each individual student and encourage all students to do their best.

San Antonio Christian School admits students of any race, color, and national/ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The school does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, or national/ethnic origin in administrating its educational policies and admissions policies.

No school is successful in teaching basic principles of life without the support and cooperation of the home and the church. San Antonio Christian School believes that there should be a working relationship between the parent, pastor, and school for the welfare and the continued growth of the student. Letters or phone calls from the school will not necessarily mean that serious problems have arisen, but may indicate a desire to counsel together before a student faces serious difficulty.

Inquiries and parental visits to the campus are always encouraged by appointment.

It is essential to maintain a positive relationship between the school and parents, guardians, or others responsible for the student. Every attempt will be made to achieve harmonious solutions to differences or misunderstandings. Failure to reach accord and receive positive support may result in a request that the student be withdrawn from the school program.

The administration reserves the right to question a student about his or her behavior at any time without parental consent.

FINANCIAL POLICIES

San Antonio Christian School is committed to providing the highest quality Christian education within the financial resources available. We recognize there is nothing more precious to parents than their children. Consequently, when we accept the responsibility of providing a Christian education for these children, we consider it both a privilege and a sacred trust. In many ways, we enter into a partnership with parents when we take on the awesome responsibility of molding the character and future of each child.

One of the necessary ingredients of operating a quality program is to have sufficient financial reserves. These resources come substantially from three areas: the Southeastern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, constituents of Seventh-day Adventist churches, and parents. It requires the faithful support of all three areas for the school program to continue in existence. We count on parents, as our partner, to faithfully meet the monthly tuition obligations of their child/children. In return for the school’s service, we ask parents to pledge the prompt payment of their accounts by signing the financial agreement. The signature indicates their willingness to withdraw their children should it become impossible for them to meet their financial obligation to the school.
