Code of Conduct

As members of Mount Eagle Academy, we represent our school, the home education community and most importantly, our Lord Jesus Christ.  In recognition of this fact, we should behave in a manner consistent with the instruction presented in God’s Word.  As Christians, our conduct should be above reproach.  To be above reproach does not mean perfect!  To be above reproach means accusations against our speech, conduct, and presentation that have no basis in truth and, therefore, the opponent would have nothing bad to say about us.  (Titus 2:7-8)

In deference to the parent, it is often uncomfortable for the adult in charge of an event to discipline someone else’s child.  With that in mind, we present these guidelines.  Please teach your child(ren) the appropriate behavior and attitudes for compliance.

  1. Have respect for authority figures, whether that is the person in charge of a field trip you’re on, an event guide, leader, etc. (I Peter 2:13-17; Romans 13:1)
  2. Strive to be an example of Christ-like character in word, deed and conduct which would include avoiding the use of bad language, hurtful comments, gossip, crude or immoral discussion, etc.     (I Thessalonians 2:12; Ephesians 4:1; 5:4)
  3. Even though you may not have a problem with certain behavior or actions within your family, if you know something is offensive to someone else, don’t do it!  Also please respect the property and landscape of those we are visiting.  (I Corinthians 8:7-13; Philippians 2:3-4)
  4. On educationally oriented field trips come prepared to listen attentively with an attitude of learning.  (James 3:13)
  5. The Word of God teaches us to dress modestly and to not cause our brother to stumble.  Therefore undergarments should not show. Tight or revealing clothing should not be worn.  (Romans 14:13, I Corinthians 8:9)
  6. Have an attitude of compassion for the differences, needs or disabilities of others.  (Matthew 7:12; James 2:1-9)

Mount Eagle Academy reserves the right to ask anyone to leave our school upon repeated violations of this agreement.  Parents are expected to enforce these standards at all school events, which include but are not limited to field trips, co-op classes, meetings, parties, graduation, etc. 

The intent of this Code of Conduct is to ensure, first and foremost, that Christ is glorified in all things that we do.  We want our actions to reflect Him.  Please make sure that each person in your family understands and agrees to abide by this Code of Conduct.
