Student And Parent Standard of Conduct
 
Harvest City Christian Academy staff are committed to providing a quality Bible-based education in a Christian environment by nurturing each child to grow spiritually, academically, socially, and physically.  It is our vision to educate Godly youth through biblical values, Christian character, and academic excellence. 
 
Education is a cooperative venture between the student, parent(s), and the school.  When registering to attend HCCA, you are agreeing to enter into this partnership and adhere to the following standard of conduct.
 
As a STUDENT, I commit to support HCCA’s mission and purpose by
  • Supporting the goals, vision, standards, and policies of the school.
  • Respecting God’s authority and the authority of my parents and staff as they train and educate me. (Hebrews 13:17, Romans 13:1-2)
  • Respecting God’s Word at all times, accepting it as final authority. (2 Timothy 3:16)
  • Using my words in a positive way to bless others; I will not use obscenities, derogatory speech, sexual language, name-calling, or coarse language (swearing). (Ephesians 4:29)
  • Refraining from discussing inappropriate movies, videos, song lyrics, TV shows, games, etc. I will not be involved in negative or ungodly content found on websites, YouTube, social media, texting, email, apps, etc. (Ephesians 5:11-12, Philippians 4:8)
  • Ensuring my attitudes, conversation and behaviour are to reflect Christian principles; I will not disrespect, bully, or intimidate others with my words or actions in person or online. (Ephesians 4:31, Galatians 5:22-26)
  • Committing to act in a manner that honours God in all areas of my life; I will not lie, cheat, swear, steal, smoke, vape, gamble, use alcohol/drugs or take part in sexual activity. (Romans 12:2, 2 Timothy 2:22)
  • Maintaining Christian standards in courtesy, kindness, morality and honesty to make HCCA a safe place; Not participating in gossip or spreading rumours. (1 Timothy 4:12, Ephesians 4:32)
  • Respecting and supporting the School; speaking about staff, students, and the school in a positive manner at all times, including on social media and on-line platforms. (Titus 3:2, Romans 12:16-18)
  • Following the dress code with a positive attitude during school hours and at school events. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
  • Arriving at school on time each day and be on time for classes. (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
  • Doing my schoolwork to the best of my ability and completing homework and assignments on time; I will not plagiarize, cheat, or give my work to other students to copy. (Colossians 3:23)
  • Modelling good school spirit and having a positive attitude, respecting others even when we disagree. (Philippians 2:1-5)
  • Handling conflict properly; When I am offended, angry or upset with someone (student or staff), I agree to go directly to him or her to deal with it in a constructive way and will avoid involving others who are not a part of the solution. (Matthew 18:15-17)
  • Accepting any resulting discipline with a good attitude knowing that it is for my benefit as well as the good of HCCA should I not abide by this standard of conduct. (Hebrew 12:6 & 11)
  • Doing my best to make HCCA a great school and trusting the Lord to help me honour this standard of conduct. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
     

    I understand that any student not willing to consistently follow the standard of conduct may be asked to withdraw at whatever time the administration determines is necessary.
