Parental Commitments to Acacia
By enrolling their students at Acacia, parents commit to support the school and its mission. In order to do this, parents must:
1. Support the school in its purposes and principles of Classical Education and in its Statement of Faith.
2. Pray for Godís wisdom for the leaders of Acacia and His blessings on the school.
3. Build alliances with the teachers and staff including effective communication, cooperation, and constructive conflict resolution methods. Be quick to listen and slow to anger. Regard the perspective of your student as valuable but limited. Pursue comprehensive understanding in cooperation with the teacher. Build community and not stir up dissention verbally nor with social media.
4. Accept biblical responsibility for the education of their children by:
  a. Ensuring that their children have the time, place, priority, and parental support needed to complete their homework and studies;
  b. Providing heart shaping discipline and appropriate consequences for behaviors reported by the schoolís staff.
  c. Ensuring that their children arrive and are picked up on time;
  d. Ensuring that their children are properly prepared for the day with meals, proper attire, and necessary supplies.
5. Encourage their children to comply with the spirit and the letter of all Acacia rules, habits, and policies with appropriately respectful attitudes.
6. Set an appropriate example to all students when on campus or at Acacia related events by observing all school rules and policies with an appropriately respectful attitude.
7. Demonstrate a love of learning and a desire to apply biblical principles to all areas of life.
8. Read what you sign and be accountable.
