Dress Code

Elementary

The purpose of the guidelines set down by the administration for the appearance of each student is not to legislate morality (which must come from the heart), but rather to encourage Christian young people to be concerned with the Biblical principle of modesty neglected by many Christians today.  Proper dress also encourages and complements a serious approach to academic subjects by each student.  Three basic questions should be asked concerning dress: 

  • Is it modest?
  • Does it call undue attention to itself?
  • Does it identify with a rebellious element of society that is contrary to God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

These dress standards will apply at school and at all school activities.
