Dress Code

Grace Christian Academy is a workplace for students and teachers. All are to dress in a way that facilitates our work and that shows respect for the school and for others. If unsure whether or not an item meets the spirit of the dress code, consider if the item conforms to school activity, is modest, is in line with the uniform guidelines (below), and whether or not the item will draw extra attention toward the wearer and away from the school as a workplace. If still unsure, please check with a teacher or the office prior to wearing the item to school.

General Notes:
• Neat and clean.
• Hair is to be naturally colored, neatly groomed, and conservatively styled.

• Each student is required to own at least one purple GCA logo Polo or Oxford style shirt to be worn on field trips and during assemblies.
