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, clean and conservative.
  • Hair is to be naturally colored, neatly groomed, and conservatively styled.
  • Shoes (laces and/or Velcro) must be closed-toe and closed-heel.
  • If a student becomes cold in a classroom, he/she may wear a sweater (plain navy blue or white) or a GCA Logo item. (NO jackets are to be worn inside the classroom)
  • Outerwear coats, jackets, non-GCA sweatshirts, and hats are to be worn outside only.

The following items are not within the dress code and are not to be worn to school:

  • Halter tops, tank tops, midriff shirts, low-cut tops, tight-fitting tops, spaghetti straps/thin straps, and any bare-shouldered garments
  • Cut-off, distressed or torn jeans/shorts, tennis shorts, bike pants and leggings (cannot be worn as pants)
