A Christian school must provide an environment conducive to the spiritual growth and development of its young people. Christian students should avoid practices which cause the loss of sensitivity to the spiritual needs of the individual and/or the loss of the Christian’s physical, mental or spiritual well being.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but that ye be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you might prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” —Romans 12:1-2
In the atmosphere of definite and positive Christian standards of conduct, the opportunity exists for the development of strong and stable Christian character. Students found to be out of harmony with ACS principles of work and life may be requested to withdraw whenever the general welfare demands.
