Student Handbook and Policies

It is the responsibility of all students and their parents to be aware of the school procedures, policies, and guidelines outlined in the current version of the Student Handbook. The Student Handbook is available online, below, and in hard copy.

General Discipline Guidelines for All Students

Good behavior arises from good character. Assisting parents in the development of godly character in their children is one of our primary goals. This is done by focusing on good behavior and commending it. On occasion we must also give consequences for negative behavior. It is necessary to recognize and contend with misbehavior so as to discourage its frequency and intensity. It is also Biblical to provide consequences within a community for inappropriate actions (Matthew 18).

It is our desire that TFA students would daily strive to obey the Scriptures. I Cor. 10:31 says, “So then, whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do all to the glory of God.” In the best interest of the entire school community, so that we might all live happily together and function as smoothly as possible, certain guidelines of conduct must be maintained by all students, both on and off campus.

Parents and students are particularly expected to read and understand the Discipline Policy, Dress Code, Honor Code, and Student Conduct Agreement.
