2018-19 Upper School Dress Code Guidelines

DRESS CODE​​ 

 

Students are required to wear school uniforms except​​ preschool. ​​ Uniforms serve as an economy measure for our families. ​​ Uniforms are​​ also​​ designed to bring dignity and enhance school spirit. ​​​​ The Academy​​ encourages unity and​​ discourages competition due to outward appearance rather the emphasis is on​​ development of​​ a relationship with Christ. ​​ 

 

May our students learn from God’s word in I Samuel 16:7…“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.​​ ​​ Man looks at our outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

 ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ 

Beginning the 2018-2019 school year,​​ uniforms​​ must be​​ purchased from Lands’ End​​ though their website at www.landsend.com. ​​​​ Uniforms purchased from Parker Uniform will be grandfathered in for the 2018-2019 school year.​​ 

See appropriate Parent/Student Handbook for uniform wear specific to​​ each​​ grade level.
