Dress Code

Harvest City Christian Academy desires to create an educational environment that honours God and enhances learning.  Dressing modestly and following specific dress standards apply at all times during school hours and during extra-curricular activities. 

Please adhere to all of the following for Standard of Dress:

¨ No undergarments should be exposed in any way.

¨ Clothing must not reveal back, stomach or cleavage.

¨ Pants should be at the waistline and secured so that no undergarments are visible. No rips/tears in pants are permitted any higher than mid-thigh. Pajama pants are not to be worn with the exception of specific “pajama days”.

¨ All shorts, skirts, and dresses should be no shorter than mid-thigh.

¨ Leggings and tight fitting yoga pants may be worn with a top that fully covers midriff even when arms are raised.

¨ Tank tops should have straps that are least an inch (two finger widths) wide.  No spaghetti straps, halter tops, crop tops or strapless tops.

¨ Sleeveless tops must be closed around the arm and bras/sports bras should not be exposed.

¨ Any controversial or objectionable images will not be permitted on any clothing. (i.e. violence, drug references, hate-related etc.)

¨ Hats, hoods, and sunglasses are not permitted to be worn in class, with the exception of specific school spirit dress up days. 

¨ Footwear must be worn at all times.  All footwear worn in the building should be clean. Every student must have gym shoes with non-marking soles and be appropriate for active sport. 

If a student or parent is not sure about any aspect of the dress code or any article of clothing, they are advised to talk to administration for clarification.  The administration reserves the right to make decisions on all dress code issues and interpretations. 

Dress code is subject to change as circumstances arise, and we will do our best to communicate those changes effectively, to both the parents and students.

Special Occasions
For special occasions such as the Christmas Program, Awards Night and Graduation, dress guidelines will be sent home prior to the event.
