- FCS is most effective when working with families who share our commitments. Therefore, priority is given to these families in the admissions process. Each family and each student admitted to FCS is expected to exhibit a cooperative spirit. Parents and students should read the Parent/Student Handbook for a description of the School’s standards and expectations. The school only admits students who want to attend FCS. Negative attitudes about the Christian faith or the School will prevent admission. The student application, interview, previous school performance and references are used to determine a student’s suitability for admission.
- All students entering FCS in kindergarten through twelfth grade will be required to complete entrance testing. The purpose of this testing is primarily for accurate grade placement. If a student tests at an alternate grade level, the administration may make the appropriate grade level change (with parental consent) or may refuse admission.
- FCS reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone who would not fit into the spirit of the institution nor benefit from the education offered. The administration also reserves the right to refuse to define the criteria or reasons when applications are not accepted. The status of all students is reviewed annually.
- This is not a corrective institution; consequently, we ask that a child not be enrolled with the idea that we will reform him. We are here to work with the home, but not to take the place of parents who are experiencing difficulty with their child. If a student has been dismissed or expelled from another school, the student will usually be required to prove himself for one year before being considered for admission at FCS.
- Attendance is a privilege at FCS. This privilege may be forfeited at any time if a cooperative spirit is not maintained in complying with the rules and regulations. If at any time a student or his parents do not demonstrate support for FBC, FCS, its policies or its biblical stand, the parents may be asked to take the child out of the school even though the child has not been an open discipline problem.
- Before the first day of school, each of our students is required to have on file a Health Record listing all immunizations, diseases and illnesses. Immunizations must be dated and the form must be signed by a physician. The preschool, transitional kindergarten, and kindergarten students must have a specific form in the school office filled out and signed by a physician for their physical.
- Parents sign at registration that they have read this handbook, including FBC Doctrinal Statement and Statement of Faith. Parents are responsible to make sure that their child understands the policies and abides by the policies.
- Friendship Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, nationality or ethnic origin in its admission policies, or in the administration of its programs.
