Faith/Church Involvement

Q: Does my child need to be a Christian to attend SACS?

New students applying for grades 9 – 12 must have a profession of faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior with regular involvement in a Bible believing local church.

It is important that the family, church, and school have a shared investment in each child’s salvation and maturity in Jesus Christ. It is critical that there is agreement with this philosophy prior to enrolling at SACS.

Q: Do both parents need to be Christians?

At least one parent (including joint custodial parents and legal guardians) with whom the student lives, to include step-parents, must be professing Christians with regular family attendance or involvement in a local Bible believing church.

Q: Is SACS associated with a specific church or doctrine?

SACS is a conservative, evangelical, protestant Christian school, not associated with any local church. Therefore, we are not as concerned about specific church affiliation as we are about one’s relationship with Christ and that there is a growing relationship with Him evidenced by regular family involvement in church. During the interview process, applicants will be asked to share their faith in Christ and their walk with Him.

Q: What kind of partnership do you require of parents?

We exist to partner with Christian parents desiring an environment where congruence can exist for their children between home, church, and school. We expect families and students at SACS to live a life consistent with God’s word. Students must also have a clear desire to want to be a contributing member of our Christian School and faith community.
