SECA Attendance
General Attendance Print

Regular attendance in school is essential for successful class work.  Any student
who is absent must bring a written note from his parent/guardian on the day of his return.  The note should go to the teacher.

Absences are divided into the following two categories:
1. Absences accompanied by a doctor’s written excuse or due to a death in the immediate family.  South Carolina State Law calls these “lawful absences.”
2. Absences due to fever, cold, flu, etc. which are taken at the parent’s discretion. South Carolina State Law calls these “unlawful absences.”

Students in grades K-5 through eighth grade may not have more than ten “unlawful
absences.”  Students in grades 9th – 12th may not have more than ten unlawful absences” in a class to receive credit for that class.  All other absences after ten must either be due to a death in the immediate family or accompanied by a doctor’s written excuse.  More than ten “unlawful absences” may cause the child not to be promoted to the next grade.  If any student in the 9-12 grades exceeds 10 unexcused absences, to avoid failing for the year, they will need to attend a scheduled Saturday school from 8:00 – 12:00 at a charge of $25 per day.

Attendance at a school-sponsored trip is credited as a regular school day.    An absence from the field trip will be counted as an unexcused, missed day.  No accommodations will be made at the school for students choosing to not go on the field trip.

Any student absent from school will not be allowed to participate in a representative capacity in any after-school activity that day, unless his absence during the day was for a doctor’s appointment or was pre-arranged with the administrator.

It is important that every student be present in their respective classrooms when school begins at 8:10.  Therefore, in grades 7-12 the following action will be followed:  After every third unexcused tardy or absence that student will be required to serve one day of in-school-suspension.  A student will be considered tardy if he or she is not in the classroom at 8:10.

Any students arriving after 8:10 a.m., or leaving before 2:55 p.m. must be signed in/or out at the front office.

Required Programs Print

Soaring Eagles Christian Academy (SECA) seeks to train each child enrolled in a number of different areas that will benefit him or her in future responsibilities in life. One of these areas is in public speaking, as well as learning the cooperation and discipline that is required to participate in a school program. The administration and staff of SECA feel that this is a necessary part of a child’s education. For this reason, the programs put on by SECA are required of its students and constitute ¼ of each child’s Bible and Music grades. The following is a list of the possible programs put on by SECA and the age group expected to attend and participate in each program:

Year-End Program and K5 Graduation K3 - 12th Grade
High School Graduation 4th - 12th Grade

Home School Print

Students in 9th – 12th who have demonstrated an ability to work independently and are self-motivated may be given permission to “home school” for a portion of each week school is in session.  Each home school student will be required to be in attendance at SECA parts of every week for testing and to obtain help with any assignments he/she is having difficulty with.   The days and times for this will be arranged for on an individual basis by the school Administrator.
