This handbook has been written to help all of us — students, parents, faculty — set boundaries and establish parameters for an efficiently run and God-glorifying school. Some of the guidelines clearly define right and wrong; others help to identify from many possible options what we, the administration, believe will be the wisest course of action in order to accomplish our mission. Every effort has been made to be clear; however, if an interpretation is to be made, the school administration will have the final say.

We are engaged together in a high calling, namely molding the lives of the young people God has entrusted to us. Toward this end, the SCPS Board of Trustees has adopted a vision statement — a word picture, if you will — which describes “The Ideal” student when we do our job well.
