QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT SHILOH HILLS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Below are answers to some questions asked by those parents considering a Christian education for their children. It is our desire that you choose a school that has a similar philosophy and similar goals to those you are teaching in your home, and that our answers to these questions will make your choice somewhat easier.
*Who sponsors your school?
Shiloh Hills Christian School is a ministry of Shiloh Hills Baptist Church. The primary reason for the existence of Shiloh Hills Christian School is to provide an opportunity for children of Christian families to have a Christian education. This concept is in harmony with the teaching of Scripture that the church shares in the responsibility of education that has been given primarily to the parents. As a ministry of SHBC, Shiloh Hills Christian School seeks to be an extension of the Christian home to help parents in fulfilling their God-given responsibility.
*Do you accept all students who apply at your school?
Shiloh Hills Christian School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin. However, we do prefer that admission be limited to families in which at least one parent has professed faith in Jesus Christ as Savior. Any exceptions must be determined by the administration. Although we would like to meet the educational needs of every student, Shiloh Hills is not equipped to help students with severe learning disabilities. Students must have completed their previous semester with academic success (no more than one failing grade) in order to be considered for acceptance. Students are not accepted directly out of detention programs.
*What must I do to enroll my child in Shiloh Hills Christian School?
*Is your school accredited?
Shiloh Hills Christian School is accredited by AdvancEd/SACS, the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and with the Georgia Private School Accreditation Council (GAPSAC).
*What are the sizes of classes?
The student to teacher ratio at Shiloh is an average of 15 to 1. Kindergarten classes have 18 or fewer students, while elementary classes generally have 20 or fewer students. Secondary academic classes average 20 students or fewer. Within the orderly, disciplinary, and traditional academic structure of classes at Shiloh Hills, we believe that these class sizes allow for optimal teacher-student interaction.
*How does your curriculum compare with other schools?
Textbooks in the elementary grades are mainly from A Beka Books. In the secondary grades, textbooks are used from a variety of Christian and secular publishers. All of our teachers are men and women who love the Lord and desire to disciple others as they teach. The teachers have college degrees and are educationally prepared to give each student a thorough scholastic training.
*How do your students perform academically?
The Terra Nova Test is annually administered to students in grades K-5 through 11. When compared to national norms, our students consistently rank one or more years above grade level. Students in grades 10 through 12 are given other standardized tests such as the PSAT and ASVAB Achievement tests. Again, they rate well against national and local norms. Students at Shiloh Hills Christian School have found themselves well prepared when moving has necessitated transfer to another school.
*Do all of your students study Bible?
Yes! Bible class is an important part of the curriculum at Shiloh Hills. All students are required to take a Bible course each semester at Shiloh Hills. Each grade level also has Chapel once a week.
*Do your students have difficulty in transferring to other schools?
Students have not had difficulty either in being accepted or in doing their work in other private or public schools.
*If my child graduates from your school, will he be accepted at any college he chooses?
No school guarantees student acceptance into college. Each college establishes its own entrance requirements. Colleges rely heavily upon a student’s grade point average in high school, scores on college entrance tests, and the selection of courses taken in high school. Students are advised to contact colleges they are interested in to determine requirements. Past SHCS graduates have successfully attended Georgia State University, Georgia Tech, Emory, Southern Polytechnic University, Mercer University, Kennesaw State University, State University of West Georgia, Berry College, North Georgia College, Liberty University, Bob Jones University, University of Georgia, Bible Baptist College of Springfield, MO, Pensacola Christian College, Clearwater Christian College, and Tennessee Temple University, as well as many other Christian and state universities.
