Wesleyan stands firmly upon the historical truth claims and moral foundations of Christianity. This includes, but is not limited to, the biblical definition of marriage, the attendant boundaries of sexuality and moral conduct, and the clear biblical teaching that gender is both sacred and established by God’s design. Parents or the legal guardians, who choose to enroll their children at Wesleyan Christian Academy, are agreeing to support these and other basic biblical values derived from historical Christianity and the relevant Christian positions embraced by the Wesleyan Church, under whose authority this academy rests. Parents understand and agree that Wesleyan Christian Academy will teach these principles and biblical values.

In addition, the Board of Directors urges parents to recognize their scriptural responsibility (Deuteronomy 6:1-9, Psalm 78:5,6, Proverbs 22:6) to provide their children with a Christian education and to understand that the primary responsibility for this task rests with the parents (Ephesians 6:4). Wesleyan was founded and continues to operate upon biblical values and the desire and commitment for Bible-believing Christian parents to enroll their children in an intentionally Christian environment. Wesleyan will consider admission for students from any family who, despite their religious background or beliefs, is willing to support Wesleyan’s philosophy of Christian education, student conduct requirements, and the school’s above-stated positions and who is willing to allow their children to be educated and influenced in an intentionally Christian environment. Continued enrollment at Wesleyan is contingent upon this same understanding and support.
