Colonial Christian School is a uniquely religious, educational institution that seeks to provide a quality education in a distinct Christian environment. One of the goals of Colonial Christian School is to work with parents and guardians to train Christian young men and women to be salt and light in their communities. Colonial Christian School believes that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and sets forth absolute truth by which Christians are to live. Colonial Christian School seeks to enroll students who are saved, committed to the Lord, and faithful to the local church (Amos 3:3).
These principles are specified in these general guidelines:
#1 Likeminded Church Affiliation
Colonial Christian School exists primarily for the edification of the faithful families of Colonial Hills Baptist Church and like-minded ministries. We desire that Colonial Christian School students and families maintain a unity of mind and spirit regarding doctrine, philosophy, and standards for worship. At the junior and senior high levels, the Admissions Committee carefully considers the doctrinal statements, philosophy, and standards of worship of other churches to insure that they are of like mind. Students continuing into seventh grade and new junior high/senior high will need to meet this requirement.
#2 Faithful Church Attendance
The parent’s should demonstrate their love for the Lord, commitment to spiritual growth, and desire to train their children by faithfully attending Colonial Hills Baptist Church or a like-minded ministry (like faith and practice). Colonial Christian School admits and retains only students who, along with their parents, faithfully attend their local church services.
#3 Saved (7-12th) and Teachable (K5-12th)
Colonial Christian School may consider for admission secondary students who have accepted Christ as Savior, have the support of their parents, are living a life demonstrating commitment to the Lord, and have demonstrated themselves to be faithful to the services of Colonial Hills Baptist Church or like-minded ministries, regardless of their family’s attendance. Should admission be granted, the student must continue to demonstrate faithful church attendance.
#4 Transferring in Good Standing
Colonial Christian School only admits a student who transfers from the former school in good standing. The school is not designed to meet the special needs of students with unusual behavior, spiritual, academic, social, or physical problems. In evaluating a potential student, admission testing and interviews are customarily required.
#5 Willingness to Meet Enrollment Expectations
At Colonial Christian School we seek to set and maintain standards for student conduct, dress, philosophy of life, procedures, and scholarship that honor the Lord and demonstrate a spirit of excellence. Colonial Christian School admits only those students in grades 4-12 who want to be enrolled. In addition, students in these grades must willingly sign the Statement of Faith and Standards of Conduct agreement. Students must continue to indicate this desire via the annual re-enrollment process.
#6 Five years old by Aug. 1 (K5)
Kindergarten applicants must be five years old by August 1.
