Philosophy of Education

The statement, “Shaping Tomorrow’s Christian Leaders Today” is our guiding principle that tells you our heartbeat educationally.  Byne Christian School is a traditional Christian school with an eye to the future and how it will impact our students.  It is our desire to partner with parents in the educational process of their child.

Student Enrollment Philosophy

We want to serve as many like-minded parents in our community as possible. To that end, we endeavor to keep our fees affordable and yet still provide a quality academic program. We also communicate our philosophy freely to advise parents of the type of environment we are striving to provide for their child.

Because we believe it is our responsibility to provide a safe-haven in a Christian school setting for children, we are selective in our student acceptance.  Students that have been expelled from their previous school or have serious discipline issues will not be admitted to BCS.  Though we are selective about students that we accept, we are not trying to become elitists.  Once a child is deemed acceptable in disciplinary expectation, then the second criteria will be a student evaluation to determine that we meet the child’s educational needs.  Once it is determined that we can serve the child, he or she will be accepted to BCS.  All new students are accepted on a nine weeks probationary status.

Non Discriminatory Policy

Byne Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic, or other school-administered programs.

Biblical Lifestyle Policy

Byne Christian School’s biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christlike.  On occasion, the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home may be counter, or in opposition to, the biblical lifestyle that the Christian school and the Bible teach.  This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, sexual immorality, homosexual orientation, or inability to support the moral principles of the school.  In such cases, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student.  (Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:27)

Saints Organization

The Saints organization is a combination booster club for the sports and a parent-teacher organization for the academic side of the school.  The mission of the Saints organization is to support the staff and student’s academic and athletic endeavors at Byne Christian School through prayer, giving, and special projects.

We encourage all Byne parents to get involved.  All parents of Byne Christian School students are members of the Saints organization.  The registration fee is included in the student application fee.  The budget of the Saints organization is to be allocated 40% to sports and 60% to academics.  The Saints organization has seven meetings annually.  These dates can be located on the school calendar.

The Saints officers are responsible for the ongoing management of the organization as well as expenditures to benefit the school.  The Saints organization sponsors events including the Exchange Club Food Booth, the Miss Byne Pageant, Judgment House, concessions/gate at sporting events, Byne Tip-Off Tournament, parade floats in local Christmas parades, and many other events.
