Houma Christian School's Admissions Policy
Houma Christian School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally afforded to or made available to its students. Houma Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, athletic and other school-administered programs. Houma Chirstian School is a part of the ministry of Living Word Church, a non-denomiational Christian Church dedicated to the propagation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Houma Christian School will consider as prospective students all applicants for admissions to the school who are deemed academically and morally acceptable. Each prospective high school student may be interviewed in an attempt to learn objectives and attitudes and to determine if these objectives and attitudes correspond with that of the school's. Standard rules of conduct in and out of school will be required of each student admitted to Houma Christian School.
These rules are as follow:
1. To refrain from swearing, indecent language, smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, the abuse of drugs, gambling, and involvement in rock music.
2. To maintain Christian standards in courtesy, kindness, morality, and honesty.
Admissions testing information will be based on recognized instruments which are generally accepted as giving valid predictive information about the applicant's capability. Records from schools of previous attendance will be secured.
To gain admittance to Houma Christian School's Kindergarten program a student must attain the age of five years old on or before October 1st of the year he or she is to enter kindergarten; likewise, for the first grade a student must attain the age of six years old on or before October 1st of the year he or she is to enter first grade.
Inasmuch as students develop at widely varying rates and times, the school accepts the obligation to work with a child and his family to determine the proper placement of the child within the academic and social framework of the school. Acceptance by the parents of the school's evaluation of the proper placement for the child is a requirement for admissions.
Admissions decisions for elementary and high school students are made by the administration of the school and are final. All first year students are taken on a probationary basis. It is God's plan for us here at Houma Christian to train future leaders for his Kingdom's purpose. Should their first year prove unprofitable in God's plan, they will be asked not to return the following year.
