Overview

              The church and school shall have a racially nondiscriminatory policy and therefore, shall not discriminate against members, applicants, students, and others on the basis of race, color or national or ethnic origin.

Faith Christian Academy is open to all students of any race, color, or ethnic group so long as they meet the following qualifications:

  5. All students transferring from another school are admitted on a conditional basis until all transcripts and records have been received and reviewed by the administration.
