Dress Code POLICY

Clothing should be neat, modest, and appropriate. Clothing should be appropriately sized – not too small and not too large. A student should not be dressed in such a way as to draw attention to his/ her body, but to respect and honor God, themselves and others.​ Parents and students have the primary responsibility to understand and adhere to the dress code. In all circumstances Jarvisburg Christian Academy retains the final authority to determine, in its discretion, whether a student is in compliance with the dress code.

Students may wear the following:

Individuals, groups, images, or wording that does not conflict with biblical principles. Appropriately worn and sized clothing which completely cover shoulders, abdomen, back, cleavage, and undergarments at all times when sitting or standing.​
