Canyon Creek Christian Academy seeks to provide an environment consistent with the school’s biblical positions. As such, Canyon Creek has certain responsibilities and concerns that other schools may not address when considering a student’s conduct or attitude. Canyon Creek faculty and students must present themselves as representatives of Christ (Colossians 3:23).
This sense of responsibility has led Canyon Creek to adopt a Code of Conduct for students and faculty members. Most of the code relates to the student’s behavior during school hours. However, certain regulations must also apply to the student’s off-campus life. Parents and students must read and agree to these regulations. Enrollment in CCCA should not be considered if a student’s life-style is not in accord with the CCCA Code of Conduct.
Canyon Creek Christian Academy’s biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to develop students to be mature, Christ-like individuals. Of necessity, this involves the school’s understanding and belief of what qualities and characteristics exemplify Christ. Even though parents may personally believe differently, all students enrolled at CCCA are expected to exhibit the qualities of Christ espoused and taught by the school and to refrain from certain activities or behaviors. On occasion, the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home may be counter or in opposition to the biblical lifestyle the school espouses and teaches. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, the inability to support the ethical and moral principles of the school (I Corinthians 6:9-20). It is expected that when a student or parent violates the established policies of CCCA, the school is made aware of the circumstances promptly.
Part of this ethical and moral policy includes sexual immorality. This includes, but is not limited to, any student or parent who professes to be homosexual/bisexual or is a practicing homosexual/bisexual as well as any student or parent who condones, supports, or otherwise promotes such practices. (Leviticus 18; Romans 1:25-27). In such cases, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student.
