Dress Code

The purpose of the dress code at Vail Christian Academy is to instill in students a respect for their environment, themselves, and others. With limited outward distinctions, students form a corporate identity and sense of community, while also learning to respect one another as individuals, uniquely designed by their Creator.

 

_MG_5316

 

“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,  so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” (Romans 12: 4-5)

 

We believe a biblical approach to this issue is one which will be neither burdensome nor legalistic; for, as Jesus teaches in Matt. 11:30,  “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” A reasonable dress code should not frustrate the students who must abide by it, nor the faculty and administrators who must enforce it and should allow for the various developmental stages of the student body. It is expected that parents will help monitor their child’s clothing before they arrive at school.  Dress code is subject to change.
