Student Dress Code

Our dress code is based on the biblical principles of modesty, neatness, and appropriateness. We need to be examples for the believers in speech, in life, in faith, and in purity (Deuteronomy 22:6,

1 Timothy 2: 9, and James 2: 1-4). As we determine to glorify the Lord in all we do, these qualities help us to do that in the area of dress.

It is also important to realize that parents, as the primary educators of their children, play a key role in this area of dress code. It is the parents’ responsibility to guide and supervise their children in the selection of appropriate clothing. This dress code is intended to make known the guidelines of Bethel Christian Academy in the area of dress (Deuteronomy 6, Ephesians 6).
