Uniform Policy 2020-2021

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

Faith Academy’s uniform policy is intended to reflect the school’s stated aims to honor God and disciple students. It is designed to encourage modesty, decency, and propriety and to de-emphasize the use of clothing as a significant means of establishing self-identity or gaining attention or social status (Matt. 6:28-34; 1 Cor. 9:19-23; 1 Peter 3:2-4; 1 Tim. 2:9-10; James 2:1-5). The Faith Academy staff may determine the appropriateness of a student’s clothing or hairstyle. The Head of School may grant exceptions to the dress code, if desired, for special dress days. Students attending any Faith Academy approved function must observe school guidelines for dress such as moderate clothing and covered tattoos.

For school days, all elements of the dress code will be enforced. All uniform clothing must be approved items. Students should wear school uniforms (including shirts tucked in, belts, proper shoes, etc.) while on campus or in the classroom during their school day, 8:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.   Students should seek to dress in a modest Christian manner that represents the school well, and considers others above themselves (Phil 2:3).

When on campus for a school event or on a day when the student is not attending school (e.g., students on campus on Monday or Thursday, for an athletic event, social function, etc.), students should be dressed in appropriate attire (excluding crop tops, short skirts or shorts, muscle shirts, tight-fitting clothes).  Students attending any Faith Academy approved function (off campus) must observe school guidelines for dress such as moderate clothing and covered tattoos.

Students attending tutoring and makeup testing on Monday/Thursdays are not required to wear a uniform. To encourage modesty, shoulders and mid drift must be covered, short shorts are not permitted and shorts or skirt must be worn over leggings.
