In order to preserve our witness as a Christian institution, to support families involved in their churches and ministry, and to support the concept of sabbath keeping (a time set aside), CAJ does not generally allow or schedule student events on Sundays nor are staff required to work on Sundays (other than security and emergencies).
- Exceptions are made for:
- Ministry opportunities including performances by music ensembles
- Unavoidable travel conflicts (most commonly with sports tournaments - see athletic handbook)
- The senior international service trip which includes a weekend (includes a worship component on Sunday)
- Some retreats approved individually by the divisional principal (retreats must include a worship component)
