“Let all things be done decently and in order.”
—1 Corinthians 14:40
In order to operate an institution in a godly and orderly manner the following understandings are expected to be followed:
The Focus of the program and the related student commitments:
To find Jesus real and deepen my relationship with Him:
I will develop a private devotional life.
I will plan to attend and engage in all meetings and classes (unless there is sickness or extenuating circumstances).
I will seek out behavior that connects with the presence of Jesus.
I will not engage in pornography, unchastity, or the use of recreational drugs, alcoholic beverages, or tobacco in any form.
I will not expose myself to media (music, books, videos, computer games, etc.) that is contrary to Jesus’ character or God’s Word.
To experience growth & healing through God’s unconditional love:
I will be honest with my assigned mentor and fully engage with the mentoring process.
To learn to love and follow Jesus as His disciple in order to grow in discipleship:
I will seek to live the Bible and align my life with it.
I will honor spiritual authority by cooperating with the Fairwood staff, or those they delegate.
I will show love to others by living by the Golden Rule.
Music, TV or Movies
Internet is available in the press room or office computers where assignments or academic research should take priority. Other wireless signals will only be accessed in public areas unless your mentor gives an exception. Wireless signals are turned off at night.
Special study times
Study times are designated for Monday and Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00, and Saturday evenings from 7:00-7:55. In order to keep Bible Study a priority, quiet will be observed during these designated study times.
Free weekends are scheduled throughout the year. The campus is closed to students at these times, except by special permission.
Special trips to the dentist or doctor will be provided, as well as travel to make necessary connections at airports, bus and train stations. Students will pay for gas. A $30 surcharge applies to any trips between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Fees and Deposits
A yearly Room and Board fee for all students will be due at registration, with scholarships available upon request. The fee for members is $1,500 if paying by the year, $825 if paying by the semester, and $195 if paying by the month. The fee for non-members is $2,750 if paying by the year.
There is an application fee of $25, which is waived for applications received prior to April 1. All students will pay a non-refundable Activity and Special Equipment fee ($75) and an Internet fee ($50), due at orientation. At the same time they will also make a book deposit ($75) and a general deposit ($50) for room and tool damages or miscellaneous expenses. This deposit will be used as needed through the year; the balance will be refunded after graduation or written notification of withdrawal, upon confirmation that all bills are paid, dorm rooms are cleaned, and summer work is completed. To cover additional electric usage, non-essential appliances have yearly fees.
