Part 3: Commitments

Because Olivet Private School is founded on Christian principles, each enrolled family must meet certain requirements set by the Olivet Board.  While membership into Olivet Private School provides more support and academic/social opportunities then homeschooling independently, it also requires family participation and involvement to run.  All enrolled families must work together with guidance from the Olivet board to provide the unique opportunities our students enjoy each year.  Without this participation, our school cannot run as intended.  Please take the time to consider the following agreements to ensure that Olivet Private School is the best match for your homeschooling family.  Members must be willing to comply with these requirements; failure to do so may be cause for dismissal with no refund of tuition:

45. *

Our family agrees to taking the yearly Iowa Test as required by the school (3rd-12th only).  

46. *

Our family will regularly participate in school activities and/or school sponsored activities each school year.

47. *

Our school depends upon parent participation in order to provide extra-curricular activities. Because our school activites are parent led, our family agrees to assume responsibility for at least two jobs/fieldtrips/activities each school year. 

48. *

We understand that tuition is due in full upon enrollment, regardless of length of enrollment. If a payment plan is needed, we agree to make payments by the due date(s) set forth by the treasurer. *Please note, failure to make timely payments may incur late fees.

49. *

We agree to fill out and send in, on time, quarterly attendance reports (K-12th) and quarterly progress reports (8th -12th) for each enrolled child.  * Please note, late fees will incur if reports are not turned in on time.

50. *

We agree to abide by the Dress Code and the Conduct Code at all school related functions.

51. *

We ensure that our family will act in a Christ-like manner at all school functions and in all of our dealings with other Olivet Private School families.

52. *

We have read, understand, and are in full agreement with Olivet Private School's Statement of Faith.

53. *

In addition to the above statements of our faith, we do attest that we, parent(s) and children, regularly attend a local church assembly that adheres to the teachings in this Statement (Hebrews 10:25).

54. *

We understand that since Olivet Private School is not funded publicly, the Board of Directors reserves the right to DENY membership to any applicant for any undisclosed reason. In the event of membership denial, any fees will be refunded.

55. *

Upon receipt of this application, you will be contacted to schedule a family interview with the Olivet Board of Directors prior to acceptance. Interviews are conducted Monday or Thursday evenings with both parents and enrolling children. Please let us know all nights your family is available and we will contact you to confirm.
