ADMISSIONS POLICY

SFC does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, nationality, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, tuition grant program, athletic and other school-administered programs.

SFC has been established on the biblical principle that God has given parents the primary responsibility for educating their children. The school enters into a partnership with parents and Christian educators to teach academics in the context of a Christian world-view and based on Christian faith and values. The policy of SFC is to offer enrollment to students of Christian parents who act and adhere to the values of the School and who desire a Bible-based, college-preparatory education for their children.

SFC is a non-denominational school and is not affiliated with any church. It is the policy of SFC to admit families who share and support our statement of faith.

SFC reserves the right to select students and families on the basis of academic performance, Christian commitment, lifestyle choices, and personal qualifications including a willingness to cooperate with SFC’ administration and policies. Therefore, SFC reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue the enrollment of a student on the basis of, but not necessarily limited to, sexual immorality, sexual orientation, or inability to support the moral principles or uphold the moral values of the school.
