ADMISSION AND CONTINUATION POLICY
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.
