Excerpt From The Student Handbook on Dress Code

The general dress code calls for students to wear good quality, neat, clean, and modest apparel that is reflective of Christian ideals, and is appropriate to the activity or occasion. No clothing should contain messages depicting rock groups, the occult, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or inappropriate language, or any other message in opposition to the standards set forth by the school.


Jewelry: Non-functional jewelry (metal, plastic, rubber, leather or cloth) of any kind, including rings, earrings (spacers, studs, or similar items), bracelets, anklets, necklaces, or wrist bands of any kind, is not permitted on campus or at any school-sponsored off-campus function. This includes the dormitory. Jewelry will be taken from the student. Confiscated items can be picked up in the office by a parent or legal guardian.


Hair: It is the responsibility of the student to keep their hair clean and groomed in an appropriate and acceptable manner. Avoid faddish hairstyles and unnaturally dyed hair. If a dorm student wishes to dye his/her hair, the appropriate dean must be contacted with permission from the student’s parent(s).


Makeup: Keep it natural. Do not use heavy eyebrow and/or eyeliner. No dark lip coloring. Only clear polish is acceptable for fingernails and toenails.
