Mission Statement:
We strive to work hand in hand with parents to challenge, inspire and empower students to fully glorify God with their gifts and talents.  We endeavor to inspire young men and women to embark on a path of lifelong learning so they will more fully bear God’s image to the world.

Statement Of Purpose:
* To support and encourage parents as they endeavor to prepare their children to become responsible, mature adults.
*To assist parents in teaching their children to distinguish truth from falsehood.
* To reinforce parents’ God given role in their children’s character development through teachers who teach from a biblical world view.

Statement Educational Philosophy and Faith:
Our philosophy is that teaching from the heart will communicate more than just facts and figures.  We strive to teach in our areas of passion.  We want to inspire students to consume the truths from each subject we teach.  Our teachers are committed to teaching from a biblical worldview.  We believe that God’s word is inherent, and that He teaches us in His word to use our gifts to bear His image to our students.  All of our teachers have professed to be followers of Christ and have signed a statement of faith.  We do not require our students to be a believer of Christ in order to participate in our classes at The Cordova Tutorial. We welcome students and families from all faiths.

Tutor Responsibilities:
Tutors preparation for each class will be done in a timely manner.  Classes will start on time and finish on time.  Tutors will require respect from each student and will discipline the student and the class as needed to maintain order.  Tutors will provide parents with enough information and material necessary to help their students achieve success in the given subject.  Tutors will cover the subject materials outlined in their descriptions for the class.

Statement Of Responsibility: Section

TCT Policies
Grading:
In our classes we will provide the instruction, hands-on and cooperative learning activities that will reinforce the new skills and knowledge the students will be acquiring.  When appropriate tutors will administer tests and grades to assess student’s mastery of the subject taken. Ultimately however the parents have the responsibility to report their child’s grades.  Students are responsible to complete all missed assignments.  Please contact the tutor for missed assignments.
Class canceled:
As you know many things happen during the year that may result in a class or classes canceled.  Our policy allows for missing one class period or school day per year without refund or make-up of class. These missed classes will only be for last minute illness, snow days or other issues out of our control. More than one will require scheduling a make-up class arranged by the tutor or tutorial.

Attendance:
We work as a team with you the parent to help your child to complete the class successfully and we know that you are aware that attendance in class is expected.  If you have to miss a class for illness or other important event please contact your tutor to receive missed assignments so they can be completed.

There are to be no students sitting in cars or outside designated class area without a parent or supervising adult present.

Mode of Discipline:
If a student violates the code of conduct, dress code, or tutor guidelines, he/she will receive one warning.  They may be sent out of the room to allow the tutor to resume teaching the other students if the misbehavior warrants. If the behavior continues in subsequent weeks the behavior will be addressed with the student and the parent will be phoned during the week.  Subsequent warnings will require a conference with the student, parent and an administrator before returning to class.  The Administrators of The Cordova Tutorial reserve the right to suspend or expel a student due to behavioral issues.  There will be no refund of the tuition due to the suspension or expulsion.
