Admission standards help the school and parents insure that if a child is enrolled, there can be reasonable expectation that they will have a successful learning experience at Salem Sayers Baptist Academy/Child Development Center. God has established the parent as the primary influence in shaping the outlook and personality of the child. This influence must be pro-Christian. If it is anti-Christian, most of the unique influence of the Christian school will be counteracted by the home. The school must therefore ascertain, as far as possible, that the applicant and parents are in agreement with the Christian education philosophy and policies of the school.
Salem Sayers Baptist Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies. The parent or legal guardian must complete the enrollment and registration agreement forms to enroll a child.
Salem Sayers Baptist Academy/Child Development Center reserves the right not to enroll students who have been expelled from another school or who have been in reform school. Exceptions can be made only if the student has experienced a manifestation of God’s grace and a changed heart subsequent to the expulsion or detention. However, the decision on enrollment must be referred to the Academy Advisory Team. If the prospective student is coming from a private school, their financial account at that school must be settled prior to enrollment in SSBA/CDC.
Since the local church is God’s vehicle for worship and service, SSBA recommends that a minimum of one of the parents be a regular participant in an established assembly of their choice. Families attending a church other than Salem Sayers Baptist Church are to furnish the name of that church and pastor to be part of the student records. In addition, applicants in grades 7th and 8th must obtain a reference from their pastor and/or former Christian school principal.
Students enrolling in Kindergarten (K5) must be five years of age by September first.
