GRACE Christian School is committed to the philosophy and principles of Christian education. Student conduct which works against school philosophy, will not be condoned. The guidelines listed herein are based on Christian principles, appropriate standards of conduct, and common sense. Guidelines provide boundaries for security and freedom. GRACE students will be held accountable for their actions at all times, 24/7, on or off campus. As it relates to social media, student online profiles and posts should be in alignment with the GRACE Code of Conduct and should be consistent with the GRACE standard and lifestyle. Posts by GRACE students that are deemed inappropriate or degrading of others may result in disciplinary action. We trust that our students will respond with positive attitudes and conduct. Students and parents are required to sign a Conduct Commitment form and return it to the designated teacher during the first week of school. These forms will be kept on file in the office.
GRACE students should be committed to the Christian standards of behavior. Daily actions should be guided by I Timothy 4:12, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.”
As a member of the GRACE student body, students must promise to uphold the following standards of behavior whether on or off campus at all times:
Display respect for school rules, those in authority, and others, including peers & classmates. Respect for the authority of any staff member at any time either in or out of school is expected of each student. Any student who is disrespectful to a staff member will be subject to disciplinary action which may include suspension or expulsion. Respect should always be displayed for persons of differing races, religions, sex, nationalities, and abilities. Conduct and attitude should be respectful. Disruptions in class, unruly behavior, or repeated violations of prescribed school policy will not be allowed.
Respect the privacy of others by avoiding behavior of a physical, romantic, or overly affectionate nature; avoiding conversation of a personal nature about others; avoiding the private space and belongings of others.
Maintain Christian standards of integrity and honesty in academics, relationships, and accountability.
Maintain a temple appropriate for the indwelling Holy Spirit in thought, word and deed.
Use school, church, and public property carefully. School property shall be protected. Malicious or careless defacing or damaging of school property which results in destruction or damage will result in both appropriate disciplinary action and the replacement of such property by the student and/or his parents or legal guardians. This includes the chewing of gum since it can cause destruction of school property.
