Midland Christian School has expectations of both students and parents:
- First and foremost, we are a Christian School and believe parents are ultimately responsible for their children’s education under God. This influences a number of requirements:
- Parents are required to be active members of a local Christian congregation and provide a pastor’s recommendation as part of the admissions process.
- Parents understand that their children will be exposed to Christian teachings and practices as expressed in the school’s Statement of Faith and agree to live in accordance with these statements. The activities of the school day, our curriculum and our other programs are all Biblically based and Christ-centered. We agree with Martin Luther who said, “I would advise no one to send his child where the Holy Scriptures are not supreme.”
- As Christians we understand that we are all under authority. During school, parents delegate authority over children to the school. This means children are subject to the discipline of the teacher and head of school.
- Parents and students are required to cooperate with the written policies of the school and be active participants in areas of discipline and schoolwork standards. More information is available in the Student Handbook.
- Just as students have homework, parents also have homework! In order for your child to be successful, we require parents to be make a commitment to being informed through regularly logging into the parent portal, reading the school newsletter and reviewing materials sent home by teachers. In addition, we encourage regular, active communication between parents and their child’s teacher and Administration.
- We require that parents become involved in the life of the school. This means finding ways to serve, participating in fundraising activities and volunteering with school functions.
As a school, we also have academic requirements:
- Parents should understand that we are Distinctly Classical in our educational approach. This is different in very positive ways from the approach found in public schools.
- An academic assessment is part of the admissions process. This guides grade placement. If the assessment indicates your child many not be adequately prepared, they may be required to repeat a grade.
We are glad to answer any questions about these requirements during your Campus Visit.
