Silverdale Baptist Academy reserves the right to operate according to its sincerely held religious beliefs about biblical marriage and sexuality and therefore does not define “harassment” as including any enforcement of, or adherence to, its biblical principles and expectations in the areas of marriage, sexuality, dress, and discipline.

Silverdale Baptist Academy admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Silverdale Baptist Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships, financial aid, and athletic and other school-administered or sponsored programs and events.

Silverdale requires students to be vaccinated in accordance with the schedule or catch-up schedule prescribed by state statutes and regulations. Even though Tennessee law provides exemptions for religious objections, Silverdale’s policy does not. Silverdale will determine whether to allow medical exemptions on a case-by-case basis after review by a medical professional selected by Silverdale.  The preschool at Silverdale Baptist Academy does not accept any exemptions - medical or religious. 

If a student is not current with his or her vaccinations, Silverdale will allow the catch-up schedule to be followed as long as the student’s immunizations are up to date prior to the first day of school (for preschool, prior to July 1st). Silverdale will work with a family and their physician if they have scheduling issues, but they must be making a good faith effort to make progress in accordance with the catch-up schedule.
