Serving the Future

ADMISSION AND CONTINUATION POLICY

 

STUDENT EXPECTATIONS

 

Private education is a privilege provided for young people by parents who recognize the importance of education.  It is not a "right" to be exercised without respect for others and it requires acceptance of certain responsibilities.

 

It is one of the goals of Columbia Academy for all students to become self-motivated, self-disciplined, and self-governed.  Each student grades 6-12 will sign a student contract agreeing to uphold the terms of this handbook and agreeing to work diligently to improve themselves and their school.  Each student should realize that their education is important and should work hard to do their personal best.  Each student should also take pride in and responsibility for their school, its programs and its mission.
