Greater Augusta Christian Academy
Parent's Statement of Support
I recognize that Greater Augusta Christian Academy has a highly qualified, trained staff and I have confidence in their ability to perform the educational functions due my child at their discretion.
I realize that from time-to-time children take issue with actions that they do not agree with, and they are prone to criticize statements out of context. This being normal for children, I pledge that should such occur, I will not support the criticism; that I will correct my child, support the school personnel, and call in for full details at any time I have a question concerning an incident.
I further realize that building strong relations with my child's supervisor to aid in the training of my child is as much my responsibility as it is the Academy's, and that I will pray for the staff and program and cooperate with them in discipline, accepting theirjudgment in all such matters; lay a spiritual foundation through Godly example in the home; support the spiritual training of chapel, revivals, etc.; follow through with any work, assignments or slips to be signed; see that the children reach the Academy ontime; send written excuses for absence or tardiness; cooperate in training the children to respect Academy property and pay for irregular abuse of same; attend all parent functions; and assist in publicizing the Academy and its program among friends.
I realize that attending Greater Augusta Christian Academy is a privilege and not a right. It is my intention to abide by the decisions of the administration and to supportthe discipline of the administration.
I am aware that the rules and policies of the Academy are to be found in the AcademyHandbook. I have read and agree with the rules in the Handbook. Some of the pertinent areas in the Academy Handbook of which I am aware are the following:
PASTOR’S LETTER: GACA requires parents to present a letter of recommendation from their pastor along with their application. All applicationsmust be approved by the school board. We desire to retain a reputable Christian School. We expect students to commit themselves to the code of conduct of GACA at all times.
UNIFORMS: Students are required to wear uniforms. Students are also required to purchase a tee shirt which has the school name and logo for P.E. class. This will be ordered through the school.
CHAPEL: Chapel service is on Wednesday. Students participate in activities such as Bible drills, singing, special speakers, and Bible study. Lower gradeshave a separate chapel service geared for their age group and comprehension level.
FRIDAY DISMISSAL: The Academy will not be in session on Friday in order to provide the staff and administration sufficient time for staff meetings, inventory, and other needs pertinent to the well-being of the Academy. There is an extended 45 minutes Monday through Thursday (school hours 7:45a.m. - 3:30 p.m.) in order to compensate for Friday class dismissal.
TRANSPORATION: The academy does not have a busing service available to students. Parents should provide transportation for students. Car poolingamong participating parents has been successful in the past.
LUNCH PROGRAM: The academy does not furnish a hot lunch program. Students must bring their own lunches. LUNCH BOXES ARE TO BE PLAIN -NO PICTURES OR CHARACTERS, SLOGAN, ETC. Students' name should be clearly marked on all lunch boxes or paper bags.
EYE EXAMINATION: We recommend that new students have a recent eye examination prior to enrollment. If the student already wears glasses, please see that their prescription is up to date.
IT IS MANDATORY that pupils who show symptoms of communicable disease be excluded from classes untilreadmission is acceptable to School authorities. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
IMMUNIZATION RECORD: (PLEASE GIVE THE DATE OF EACH.) **Immunization Form 3231 or a notarized DPH Form 2208 must be turned in at time of enrollment
REMINDER: No pupil will be excused from P.E. without a written permit from a physician.
