Our policy is designed to provide a variety of acceptable options for creativity in an environment designed for professional academic success. We desire to intentionally minimize distractions that call too much attention to appearance or would compromise our Biblical standards of modesty for young men and women. We expect students and parents/guardians to take responsibility for properly monitoring student clothing choices. We also ask staff and volunteers to observe the same standards when on campus or with us on the road. Our goal is that the dress code would not become an ongoing issue, so that positive academic, spiritual and social development would be our central focus.
However, dress code accountability must be enforced, and we expect that parents/guardians and students support our policies and accept responsibility for consequences of failure to follow the guidelines. Students are expected to dress appropriately at school and all school sponsored events, whether held on or off school property. This includes but is not limited to: concerts, graduation, sporting events, banquets, fund raisers, class trips, etc. Students may be excluded from participation if attire is considered unacceptable.
