Attendance at this school is a privilege and not a right.  The goals of this school are not to reform but to train Christian youth of every ability in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship.  The school stands without apology for the old-time Gospel and the highest standards of morality and Christian behavior.
The school’s objective for a private, Biblical, Christian education is to obey the Scriptural imperatives of Deuteronomy 6:5-7; and Proverbs 22:6.  Teaching is training. Training for life must include training for eternity.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. ~ Proverbs 22:6
