Statement of Purpose
The purpose of KCCHSA is to further the interests of the education of children by their parents by all lawful means and in the context of the Judeo-Christian ethic.
Statement of Beliefs
- We believe that the ultimate purpose in living is to know and glorify God and to attain eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, beginning within our own families and then reaching out to the world. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ and that through His death and resurrection God procured the redemption of His fallen creation.
- We believe that the institution of marriage was intended by God to be a permanent, lifelong relationship between one man and one woman. Any expression of sexuality outside the commitment of marriage defiles both the person and the institution.
- We believe that children are a heritage from God and a blessing from His hand. We are therefore accountable to Him for nurturing, educating, and preparing them for a life of service to His Kingdom and to humanity.
- We believe that human life is of inestimable worth and significance in all its dimensions from conception to the grave.
- We believe that God has given parents the privilege, responsibility, and authority to educate their children in a manner consistent with His Word as given in the Bible.
Support Group Policies
- Participation in any KCCHSA activity is open ONLY to members.
- When attending support group events, all members agree to offer help in areas such as planning, executing, set-up, and clean-up.
- All members agree to comply with support group activity deadlines, age/grade limits, and financial arrangements.
- Families who are unable to pay their membership dues may request that dues be waived for one year, subject to approval of the leadership team.
- All members are expected to arrive to events/field trips/meetings on time and agree to maintain proper control and constant supervision of their own children while attending ANY KCCHSA event.
- One benefit of being a member of KCCHSA is our Formal Graduation Ceremony held in May. February 15th is the deadline to supply your child's information to the graduating ceremony coordinators. KCCHSA will purchase a diploma with the name of the graduate's school. Families with a child graduating must be a current KCCHSA member by February 15th of the graduating year. Any senior joining KCCHSA after February 15th must pay a $60.00 fee to help cover the extra cost incurred by missing the deadline.
