The Headmaster, David Delph of Trinity Christian Academy in Dallas issued a general statement about the school's discipline policy in response to questions with regard to their decision to expell a gay student months away from graduation.
"As a community of Christian families we also believe the Bible provides insight to help us discern God's desire for our conduct.
Therefore we demand high Biblical standards of behavior from our students both academically and socially.
Our families are asked to embrace these standards of conduct by signing a covenant with the school when students are admitted.
The private school has the right in Texas to expel students upon discovering they are gay. Texas like most jurisdictions in the United States does not protect someone from discrimination due to sexual orientation.

Trinity Christian was his second family, the student said, and by every indication he was one of the school's favorite sons.
