MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL

STUDENT CONDUCT PLEDGE

One necessity of life is control.  Every area of life needs controls.  The Christian life is one of control…not merely self-control, but spirit-control.  Students whose attitudes and conduct, either on or off campus, are deemed undesirable and opposed to the basic philosophy, goals, and objectives of AVCS will not be allowed to continue at Apple Valley Christian School.

Please read this document carefully.  At the beginning of each school year, each student will be presented with this document in class or chapel.  The document will be discussed and the students will initial and sign it.  All parents must read, agree to enforce, and sign this document where indicated below.  When signed by you, it becomes a legally binding contract.
