For the well-being of the whole student body, it is necessary to establish guidelines in order to avoid misunderstandings. Florida Free BMW is designed to develop a quality young person with a personal love and commitment to Christ, a modest lifestyle and a well-disciplined life—someone who is equipped to minister wherever God calls.
Florida Free BMW students must make the commitment to willingly obey the student policies. These policies are maintained with a system of minutes or demerit points. Attendance at Florida Free BMW is a privilege granted to those who desire to work together in carrying out the aims of a Christian school.
Vacations and Holidays
Students receive three weeks of vacation starting at the end of August and two weeks over Christmas. Holiday time off is the same as the Teen Missions staff—Good Friday and the Thanksgiving weekend. Students will need to arrange their own transportation to and from the airport.
Students may have Cell phones, but must switch them off during class time. There is a phone available in the lounge for student to use. Teen Missions phone lines are for business and must stay open for business and overseas calls. Students may receive personal calls on business lines only in the case of an emergency.
Vehicle owners are responsible for car insurance, and must have a valid driver’s license. Students may not to borrow other student’s cars while at BMW.
If a student fails to complete their commitment to Florida Free BMW training (6 terms), they are responsible to reimburse Teen Missions a $300 room and board fee for each month of schooling.
Students are responsible for providing their own health insurance. Often they can remain on their parents’ policy while they are a student. Check with your insurance agent.
Florida Free BMW students adhere to the Teen Missions dress code for work training. Classroom attire is neat and professional:
Girls—dresses/skirts (below knees) and blouses, dress pants, dress shoes or dress sandals.
Guys—collared shirts, dress pants (no jeans) and dress shoes.
During the evenings and on weekends, students can wear modest casual attire such as shorts and flip flops. Boots are only necessary during Boot Camp.
