Students are expected to attend each session, and be on time. We know that situations arise that are outside of your control, and there’s grace for that.
Students are allowed five (5) absences to use as they feel necessary. Any absences that may occur beyond that will be discussed with school leadership.
Students will be assigned specific books to reinforce the main theme of each trimester. Students are expected to read the books, write a report (guidelines will be given), and be prepared to discuss them.
While reading can be challenging, this season is meant to stretch and equip you, and as students you will be expected to embrace that. The cost of your books is included in tuition.
There will be homework due dates, which you will submit online or via the class Band app. It is expected, unless otherwise arranged, that your homework will be turned in on time.
If your assignment is not turned in on time, or you are excessively late with turning homework in, or you are not caught up by the homework milestones, you may not be able to attend class until it is turned in.
Every other week, students will get together with the Tribe Pastor for Tribe. Tribe nights are designed to create community and be a safe place for students to process how they’re doing throughout the year together.
They will also go more in-depth on the various themes that we discuss throughout the year. Second Year students are not required to attend these meetings, unless they are being mentored by a Tribe Pastor, and can choose whether they'd like to attend Tribe. We only ask that if you decide to attend Tribe, you stay consistent so as not to disrupt the "family" that bonds together throughout the year.
There will be several weekend encounters and/or conferences that will be offered throughout the year. These events are open to more than just CSM students, but as a student, you will get to attend for free, with the understanding that you will also be serving the Kingdom Convergence leadership wherever they may need you. It is expected that every student will attend at least three of these intensives + the two main conferences throughout the school year. These weekends will both equip you and give you the opportunity to serve and grow in ministry experiences.
