Biblical Principles


   One of the basic reasons why parents enroll their children in a private school is to


Obtain an education grounded in moral values.  Beth Haven Christian Academy


Uses the Biblically-based Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum,


Which includes Scripture memory passages and reference to God and Jesus Christ,


All designed to help students develop moral character, a sense of accountability,


And wisdom in their lives.  Standards of personal conduct, school policies, and


Curriculum continues to build the student’s sense of responsibility and integrity.






   We have been in existence for over 30 years.  We are thankful for what God has


Done over the years, and that you have considered Beth Haven.  BHCA has been


Recognized by Accelerated Christian Education for its academic excellence, and


Is accredited by (ACE).  Our graduates have gone successfully into the job market,


To college, and the U.S. Military.


   BHCA is a ministry of Beth Haven Baptist Church, an Independent,


Fundamental Baptist Church, founded in 1975 by Senior Pastor, Lamar Tidmore. 


The Academy is under the management and direction of the Beth Haven Baptist


Church leadership which consists of Lamar Tidmore, Senior Pastor/Principal;


Tim Smith, Pastor, Academy Administrator; and Donald Pike, Trustee.


Admissions Policies



   Parents wishing to apply for their child’s enrollment must attend an interview


With the principal.  Older students should attend this meeting with their parents. 


Students expelled or dismissed from other schools will generally not be accepted. 


Such cases are examined carefully on individual bases by BHCA leadership. 


BHCA does not discriminate based on race, color, national or ethnic origin. 


   While all transfer credits are accepted, students will be diagnostically tested for


Grade/pace level placement. 


   Immunization records are required for all students accepted.  Students who have


Health reasons or religious exemption must have proper documentation.


   Except the young, any student who has not accepted Jesus Christ as Saviour


Will not be accepted for admission.

Applicants when space is limited.


   Neither married persons, divorced persons, nor fathers or mothers of children


Will be accepted as students.


   All applicants for re-enrollment will be approved or disapproved at the discretion

Period for payment, but after the tenth day a $5.00 late charge will be assessed to

Dismissed, without arrangements being made.



Standard of Conduct

    Students of BHCA are expected to refrain from talking about or engaging in


Cheating, swearing, smoking, gambling, rock and rap music, public dancing,


Drinking alcoholic beverages, using narcotics, pornography, and fornication.


Students who participate in such activities, in or out of school, are subject to


Suspension.  Students are expected to act in an orderly and respectful manner,


Maintaining Biblical standards of social courtesy, moral behavior, acceptable


Language and honesty. Students must agree to strive toward unquestionable


Character in dress, conduct, and attitude.



Medication Guidelines


   No staff member is allowed to administer any medicines without parent


Authorization in writing. All medicines must be kept and administered by BHCA





Parental Involvement


   Parent orientation, meetings, and conferences help to promote a good


Understanding between parents or guardians and the BHCA staff. Every parent is


Required to participate in these informative and helpful programs.




   BHCA is not a corrective institution; consequently, we ask that a child not be


Enrolled with the idea that he will be reformed. We are here to work with the


Home, but not take the place of parents who are experiencing difficulty. All new


Students are admitted on probation for the first six weeks.


The student must at all times conduct himself in a manner becoming a lady or


Gentleman. Griping or disrespect is not tolerated! If your child does come home


complaining about a policy or discipline, you should follow the procedure below:


1. Give the staff the benefit of the doubt.

2. Realize that your child's reporting is emotionally biased and may not

     Include all the information.

3. Realize that the school has reasons for all rules and that they are enforced

    Without partiality.

4. Support the administration and call the school for all the facts.


   It is essential that a quality learning environment be maintained for all students.


Any child, whose attitude or behavior is not in accordance with school policies or


Principles will be placed on probation and parents will be called for a


Conference. If the administration feels the situation has not changed within a


Designated time, parents will be asked to withdraw the child.


BHCA will strive to provide discipline which is firm, consistent, fair, and tempered


With love. Staff members maintain standards of behavior in the Learning Center


Through incentives, kindness, love and a genuine regard for the student. However,


When disciplinary action becomes necessary, it is firmly carried out, tempered by


Good judgment and understanding. This includes the issuance of demerits which


Can result in loss of privileges, detention after school hours and in some cases the


Use of corporal correction. Parents will be notified in writing of detentions or


Corporal correction.


Students are reminded that God expects us to be disciplined in all areas of life:

"Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers..." Romans 13:1

"Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves..." Hebrews 13:17

"He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth." Proverbs 10:17

"Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying." Proverbs 19:18

"Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him." Proverbs 22:15



General Information for Parents and Students


Church Attendance – We strongly suggest all parents and students attend the


Church of their choice regularly.



School Attendance - A written excuse signed by a parent or guardian must be


 Presented to the supervisor when a student returns to school after an absence. If


The absence is foreseeable, a note should be sent in advance.


Excessive absences will inhibit the student's progress. If, in the opinion of the


Administration, the absences are unnecessary, the student will be considered truant.


Continued unexcused absence will necessitate a conference with parent and


Principal, possibly leading to disciplinary action or suspension.


Students must have written permission to be excused from class early.


A student is considered tardy if he is not in the Learning Center on time. Continued


Tardiness will necessitate a conference with parent and principal, possibly leading


To disciplinary action or suspension. A written excuse must be received for a tardy


Student to be excused.


Students should be at their office ready to begin the day at 7:45 And be picked


Up promptly at   Students must be picked up no later than 3, at the


End of each school day.  Students being picked up early must be checked out through the school office. 



Homework -The responsibility for scholastic achievement is placed on students.


Most students should not need to take academic work home. The goals set by the


Student and reviewed by the supervisor usually are no more that the student is


Capable of completing during the school day. Should the student not meet his goals?


 For that day, he will be required, at the discretion of the supervisor, to complete the


Work at home after school. A homework slip will be given with the prescribed


Homework and should be signed by the parent and returned the following day.
