Uniform Standards

The Board of Education voted to have a uniform dress code beginning the 2011-2012 school year. Our uniform standard is designed to teach young people an “outward adornment” that reflects the inner beauty of our Lord Jesus Christ. It enhances the development of a “meek (submissive, yielding) and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God a great price.” The goal of the uniform is to help students present themselves in a neat and clean man-ner that is in accordance with our efforts to be a witness of Christ to those around us. We also want apparel to be safe and modest.

In order to achieve this goal, the following uniform dress code gives the standards ap-propriate for students in our school.

  • Solid color polo shirt
  • Khaki or Navy pants
  • Girls may wear Khaki or Navy skirts, skorts or jumpers, polo dresses
