ADMISSIONS POLICY

NHCS admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally afforded or made available to all students at NHCS.  NHCS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality or ethnic origins.

NHCS desires to assist and serve parents in providing the kind of education that is Biblical, challenging, innovative and applicable to the real world, all in the context of a positive Christian environment where teachers love the Lord and love children.  Our desire is to build a relationship with parents that is based on mutual trust, timely communication and a commitment to excellence.

NHCS believes it is the parent’s responsibility to train children and that the school’s task is to assist the parents in fulfilling their God-given responsibility.  Therefore, it is an admissions requirement that one parent, preferably both, follow these guidelines:
·NHCS is not a corrective institution.  Consequently, a child must not be enrolled with the idea that we will reform him/her.  We are here to work with the home, but not to take the place of parents who have experienced difficulty in fulfilling their roles.
·Preferably both, but at least one parent/guardian must attend a Parent Orientation Workshop that familiarizes them with the curriculum, philosophy and procedures.
·Parents must agree with the core Biblical doctrines in the Statement of Faith.
·Parents must be in agreement with our basic objectives and should be willing to actively support the educational program.
·Parents must have a sincere desire for a Christian education and students must be willing to submit to the standards and regulations of the school.
·The applicant’s record of behavior at home, in the church, in a previous school (if applicable) and in the community must indicate that we at NHCS can be reasonably sure that the applicant’s citizenship in the school will be acceptable.
· Applicants entering grades 7-12 must sign a “Standard of Conduct” form.  All students are admitted on a probationary basis.
·The student must be of suitable age for the grade assigned (children entering kindergarten must be five years of age on or before September 1).  Students will be diagnosed academically to determine their academic performance level in each subject.  Students will then be prescribed curriculum to first fill in any learning gaps.  They are then placed in the curriculum at their academic performance level after learning gaps are mastered.

All new students are admitted on a probationary basis for 9 weeks.  For some students, specific circumstances may warrant further probation.  Parents will be called in for a conference if a student’s attitude is not in accordance with school policies and principles.  The administration and the parents will discuss the changes in attitude and behavior that are necessary for the student to remain enrolled at NHCS, along with a reasonable time frame for those changes to take place.  If the administration finds that the situation does not improve within the set time, the parents will be asked to withdraw the child.  The administration reserves the right to ask a student to withdraw from the school at any time they feel the student or family is having a detrimental effect upon the spiritual and social atmosphere of the school.

NHCS assures those who choose to attend that all disciplinary policies and actions have as their ultimate goal the spiritual welfare of the student.  To guarantee a Christian atmosphere for learning, standards for Christian attitudes and behavior are set in Galatians 5:15-26.
