Statement of Faith

We believe… In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary.  That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor. That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins. That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost. Holiness to be God’s standard of living for His people. In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart. In the Gifts of the Spirit and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement. In the Lord’s Supper. In the pre-millennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years. In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.

Restoration Christian Academy will offer sports through the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association. Middle and high school boys/girls basketball and girls volleyball. Other sports (soccer) may be added as the conference expands.

 

Staff

Restoration Christian Academy's staff will consist of qualified individuals as well as trained assistants.  From transportation to the kitchen, each staff member is required to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and must display godly character in and outside of the school. They also will share a heart for God with a willingness to help mold and direct the most precious thing God ever gives us... our children.

All medication will be kept in the school office and will be administered by the child’s teacher or office staff.  All over the counter medications will be kept in the school office. And must be accompanied by a written note from the parent giving permission and dosage approved.

 

Discipline

Restoration Christian Academy will provide excellent academic instruction in a disciplined atmosphere. Our focus is on character building and it should be noted we are a Christian school. We believe that communication is the key in the student’s development and will correspond when necessary to update student’s behaviors and concerns.

 

Health Information

All students are required to have a birth certificate and a Certificate of Immunization on file with the school. The certificate must be an official, signed copy by a physician.

 

Students who arrive early to class must wait in the hallway with adult supervision, until the teacher enters the classroom. No one may be on the playground equipment or use the basketball goal before school in the morning.

 

Books and Supplies

All books and supplies are not furnished as part of your registration fee; a list will be provided according to the age level of your student. During the course of the year, if a book is lost or damaged beyond use, or test failed, the parent may need a replacement for the child and the parent will be charged a replacement fee.

 

Building Policies

 In order to keep the building God has given us in good condition, to insure the safety of our students, and to maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning, it is essential that all students observe the following policies. Students may not run in any part of the building at any time. Disruptive and repetitive talking in the halls is not permitted, unless you are speaking to an adult. As soon as school is dismissed at the end of the day, all students except after school students, are to go to the front area of the school for pick up. Students to walk home must leave from the pick-up area and only with the teacher’s permission. There must have a parent note on file. Students going to after school may go directly to the appropriate room when school is dismissed. There is to be no loitering or wondering around the building. If you are staying for an afterschool activity you must be under the supervision of an adult.

  

Cell Phones

Cell phones must be kept in the office during school hours. If a cell phone is confiscated, a parent will be required to sign and pick up the phone from the office.

 

Recess

All students receive a mid-morning and afternoon recess.  Students may not leave the school grounds during recess. Weather permitting, recess will be held outside on the playground. Students may not leave the designated area during recess.  Should you not obey these rules it will be considered as a majoring fraction and result in parents being consulted and lost the privilege to go outside to the playground with other students.

 

Respect

Respect for authority is extremely rare in our world, but it is a character trait that we expect to see in all of our students.  Our students will be taught and expected to treat everyone with respect. Name-calling, making fun of others, pro practical jokes and other forms of a respite will not be tolerated.

 

Telephone Use

No student may use the telephone without permission from the teacher. All student phone calls must be made from the office. Be sure that your reason for using the telephone is important.

 

Computers

 There will be access to a computer.

1. Use of the computer is a privilege, not a right. If you abuse this privilege in any way, you will lose it.

2. Homework assignments always take first priority over educational games.

3. No one may access another person’s documents.

4. No one can bring any software or flash drives from home to use on the computer or install on the hard drive.

5. You must clean up your area every day before dismissal. Periodically, please check the flooring tables for pencils, pens, paper, etc. Make your work area a safe place. Return your chairs under the workstation each time you leave the area.
