Conduct and Dress Policy
Colossians 3:12–17 (NIV)
12Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
13Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
14And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
15Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
16Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.
17And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
The purpose of our dress code is to provide guidance. We can’t possibly address all fashion trends. Please remember that it is the responsibility of each student and parent to make choices that will honor God and each other.
- Undergarments belong UNDER your other clothes. Don’t go showing it off.
- No short shorts or short skirts. If you bend over and have to worry about flashing anyone, they are too short.
- Tops end where bottoms begin. Your midriff belongs behind one or the other.
- Yoga pants are for doing yoga in. Save the tight-fitting pants/shorts for the gym or cover them with a long shirt.
- No t-shirts, caps, socks, accessories, etc. with suggestive, illegal, or otherwise inappropriate pictures or wording.
- Swim attire: While in the pool, men are not required to wear a shirt, but are asked to put on a shirt when they are no longer swimming. Likewise, modest two-piece swimsuits are allowed for women as long as no mid-riff is visible during regular wear.
Blatant violation of conduct or dress code may be reason for removal from an event. Questionable modesty is an issue that can be addressed privately with the parent and no one else.
