The following are some behaviors that reflect character values and expectations that we strive to teach and model at BCS. Students are encouraged to demonstrate these behaviors at all times.
- Practice honesty, truthfulness, and responsibility.
- Show respect to parents, faculty, staff, and others.
- Be obedient. Follow directives the first time they are given.
- Be present and on time at the beginning of the day and to each class.
- Bring all necessary materials to class, prepared for daily assignments.
- Demonstrate respect for chapel speakers and services.
- Be encouraging. Do not use vulgar or abusive language, personal put-downs, cutting remarks, or obscene gestures. Do not harass or “bully” anyone. Offensive language will not be tolerated; BCS will strictly enforce a “three strikes and you’re out” policy for repeat offenders.
- Take care of your body. Abstain from tobacco, alcohol, improperly obtained prescription drugs or controlled substances.
- Make good choices. Abstain from involvement or even the appearance of being involved in immoral activities (i.e. sexual misconduct, pornography, abortion, homosexuality, the occult, lying, cheating, stealing, etc.) This includes inappropriate conduct/postings on websites such as Facebook, Instagram, and social media of any kind.
- Respect and follow the dress code.
- Be pure. Abstain from any public display of affection (e.g. holding hands, embracing, kissing, etc.).
- Respect property. Clean up after yourself and others. Do not vandalize or steal property.
- Respect others. Do not try to hurt another student, bring knives or weapons of any kind (whether toy or real), matches, lighters, etc.
- Practice personal accountability.**
**School-owned equipment i.e. lockers, desks, computers, etc. are subject to random or individualized searches at any time. If a student is suspected of specific wrongdoing, the student may be required to empty his/her pockets, handbag, wallet, or backpack for school personnel. If suspicion involves a substance or object that may injure the student or other students, the search may include a bodily search of the student in the presence of an appropriate adult with the student’s parent. If the student and/or parent does not consent to conducting the search, the student may be subject to withdrawal or expulsion for suspicion of wrongdoing.
