Dress Code

Scripture speaks to the relevance of dress in a sincere Christian life, one that is pleasing and glorifying to the name of Jesus Christ (I Timothy 2:9 and II Thessalonians 1:12).  Personal appearance should contribute to a holy testimony for Christ.  Therefore, guidelines for dress and appearance are made to assist with that testimony and to minimize certain influences which distract from the purpose of the school.
