  • Parents are committed to partnering with Berean Christian School in their child’s education and development
Berean Christian School holds that the Bible is the infallible, divine Word of God and that salvation by faith in Christ is the initial step in the Christian life. There is an adequate Biblical basis for the idea of spiritual growth into the image of Christ (Romans 8:29), which is the work of the Holy Spirit (II Corinthians 3:18). This growth begins with the initial act of saving faith and continues throughout life. The Holy Spirit makes the Christian conscious of the Biblical demands for a holy life which fulfills both God's moral law and high law of love (Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 13:8-10, Galatians 5:14). The result is a life consecrated unto God and separated from the world.
 
Therefore, Berean Christian School will provide an environment conducive to the spiritual growth and development of its young people. A standard of conduct based on the following Biblical imperatives is necessary to provide such an environment (I Corinthians 8:9, 12-13, 10:32). All of the activities of the Christian must be subordinated to the glory of God who indwells us. The Christian will endeavor to avoid practices that cause the loss of sensitivity to the spiritual needs of the world and loss of the Christian's physical, mental, or spiritual well-being (I Corinthians 9:27).
 
A sense of the need for spiritual growth in the light of these principles has led Berean Christian School to adopt the following standards which will best promote the spiritual welfare of the student. The school requires each student to agree to the following:
  1. I will refrain from smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, immorality, and the use; abuse, or encouraging the use of illegal drugs, or attending social events that involve students participating in these behaviors. Violations may result in suspension or expulsion.
  2. I will avoid inappropriate use of electronic equipment, media, or the internet. I must also refrain from sexual harassment, consistent or repetitive “badgering”, bullying or verbal abuse (in person, writing, or through electronic media). Violations may result in suspension or expulsion.
  3. In order to sustain Christian growth in my life, I will abstain from activities that would be dishonoring to God both on and off-campus.
  4. I will endeavor to maintain the Christian standards of courtesy, kindness, morality, and honesty.
Berean Christian School believes that the aspiration and attainment of these codes of conduct build outstanding Christian character.
 
Harmony Clause
 
Students are required to abide by these standards throughout their enrollment whether at home, school, or elsewhere, recognizing that wherever a BCS student goes and whatever he does, he carries and reflects on the testimony of his Savior, his family, and his school. Parents, or students, found to be out of harmony with the Berean Christian School ideals of work and life may be invited to withdraw whenever the general welfare demands it, even though there may be no special breach of conduct.
In this atmosphere of definite and positive Christian standards of conduct, good scholastic planning, and intimate personal interest between family, faculty, and student, there is a fine opportunity for the development of strong Christian character.
