Partnering For Eternity Scholarship Program

The Partnering for Eternity (PFE) Scholarship Program has been helping cultivate relationships between mentors and students at Seventh-day Adventist academies and elementary schools since 2006.

The goal of the program is for students and mentors to create intergenerational relationships and experience the blessing of service.

In the process, students receive scholarships for their tuition and mentors receive the gift of friendship and ability to bestow their knowledge and skills on to a younger generation, hopefully making an impact for years to come.

Spots are limited. Please call or email the school office if you are interested in signing up.

2021-22 Handbook Changes

Last month our school board approved the following changes to our school handbook:

Probation (Academic)
If a student receives two Ds or one F during a quarter grading period (9 weeks), they may be placed on Academic Probation and their progress will be closely monitored in the upcoming quarter grading period. At the conclusion of the next quarter grading period, the student’s academic progress will be reviewed. At that time, a student may continue on probation, be granted regular status, or be asked to withdraw from SAA for non-performance. Students placed on academic probation may have their course load adjusted, forfeit their leadership office, or be suspended from an athletic team.

Cell Phone Policy
K-8 grade students cannot use cell phones during school hours. There will be no cell phone use by 9-12 grade students from 8 am to 3 pm, except during lunch, unless the teacher asks a student to use their phone, or the student gets permission from the teacher. If a cell phone is used outside of these guidelines, the phone will be confiscated and returned at the end of the day.

Athletic Eligibility
In order to participate in any athletic program, a student must be passing ALL classes with a C or higher. Any grade below a C will deem the student ineligible to participate until such a time as the student raises their grade to a C or higher. Any late work turned in must be in before Friday each week in order for that work to be considered in helping them to regain their eligibility the following week. All eligibility will be determined every Monday for the entire week. Students should not turn in work and expect that work to make them instantly eligible to participate. Participation includes games, travel for away games, and practices.
