Student Prom Guidelines

Prom will be held the first Saturday of April every school year.  If the first Saturday falls on Easter weekend, Prom will be held the Saturday before Easter weekend.  Prom is for 10th, 11th and 12th grade students.  They may invite a 9th grade student to attend as a guest.  Guests may not be 21 or older.  If their guest does not attend Faith Academy, they must fill out a Prom Visitor Application.

PROM RULES:

  1. As a school function, all school rules are in effect even though the dance is not on school property.  Please refer to the Faith Academy Student Handbook Policies.
  2. Once a student or guest leaves the dance he/she is not allowed to return.
  3. No food or drinks are allowed inside the facility from the outside.  Refreshments are available inside the facility.
  4. Tobacco products, vapes, non-prescriptive drugs, alcohol, or weapons are not allowed at a FAMF sponsored event.
  5. Public displays of affection will not be permitted at any school-related activity.
  6. Students and guests are required to sign in upon admission.
  7. Only approved guests will be admitted.
  8. Parents and students assume responsibility for any accident or property damage while attending and traveling to and from the prom.
  9. The administrators and sponsors reserve the right to make any other decisions needed to ensure a safe night for the students and their guests.
  10. Administrators and sponsors reserve the right to refuse admittance to any student or guest that is inappropriately dressed.  Please refer to the dress guidelines below.
  11. Students or guests who do not comply with these rules will be removed from the dance.

DRESS CODE:

BOYS:  Boys are encouraged to dress appropriately with the minimum requirement being dress shirt with tie, dress pants, regular or dress shoes (no sneakers).  Dressy turtlenecks with a jacket is also acceptable, suits or tuxedos are excellent choices to complement the girls’ dresses.

GIRLS:  Girls may wear dressy or formal dresses and evening or ball gowns that are in keeping with modest standards.  Modest styles are encouraged in place of revealing styles often found in teen magazines and department stores, which are not welcome at our prom since they detract from the wholesome atmosphere we wish to maintain.  Almost everyone has shown very good judgment in this regard at our past proms and dances.  To avoid any misunderstanding, we do have the following restrictions:  no low-cut or plunging necklines or open plunging backs (below the bra-line); skirts, dresses and slits should be no shorter than 4 inches above the knee; no bare midriffs or other inappropriate bare sections; and no extremely tight or see-through dresses.

Strapless dresses and dresses with spaghetti straps are allowed as long as the dress is still modest in presentation.  After all, some dresses are more modest with these features than some without these features.  Be careful in your choice, no cleavage.  If in doubt, err on the side of modesty.  If you have any specific questions, feel free to call or email the school to discuss them.  These requirements are guidelines will be enforced, and you may be sent home if you do not follow them.
