Dress Code

Dress Code

The purpose of Legacy Christian School’s dress code is to reflect modestyneatness, and appropriateness. A student should not be dressed in such a way as to draw attention to his/ her body, but to respect and honor God, themselves and others.

Modesty can be defined as making sure our bodies are covered in such a way as to honor the Lord and not to offend and/or tempt those around us.

Neatness can be defined as a look that is clean with clothes that are proper fitting (not too small and not too large) and in good repair.

Appropriateness can be defined as wearing clothes that fit the occasion.  In a school setting, appropriate clothes are those that do not hinder the educational process or draw attention to oneself.
