School Policies

Standard of Conduct: 

Students will seek to “be imitators of God” with “not even a hint of sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity,” living as “children of light” and finding out “what pleases the Lord” (Ephesians 5:1-12). This standard governs our personal and public life.

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person–such a man is an idolater–has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them. 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the LORD. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the LORD. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.


Students are expected to attend classes regularly and punctually. During the first semester, the maximum number of absences permitted is one day the maximum number of absences during the second semester is two. Exceptions to this policy will be made only for extreme circumstances and emergencies. If a student’s absences and tardies total more than 8 days a school year, it is likely that the student will not receive a Certificate of Completion and will potentially be asked to leave school.

Discipline of Students: 

The freedom of the ETS environment requires a high level of self-management. Any student struggling to make wise choices will receive quick and direct confrontation, which is designed to help draw out the greatness within the student. Our staff and pastoral team is trained and empowered to apply strength and grace in whichever areas necessary of students’ lives.


Any student who wishes to withdraw from Dare To Believe School of Transformation must do the following:

  • Arrange an appointment with a ETS pastor to discuss the reasons for withdrawing from the school.
  • For tuition refund information; see the section under Financial Information.
