Dress Code


Every attempt is being made to train our students for spiritual and academic excellence. The Biblical principles upon which the dress code is based are modesty, cleanliness, and neatness. Grace Christian Academy recognizes parental authority and depends on parents to support the dress code. Grace Christian Academy has adopted an L.E.S.S. Dress Code: Likable, Enforceable, Sensible, and Simple. The school administration reserves the right in determining violations of the dress code. If, in the view of administration, a student is in violation of the dress code, the student's parents may be asked to pick up the student, to bring proper attire, or to take care of any other infraction.

GCA has two local vendors with our new logo saved for the required logo polo and PE clothing.  Please contact them for orders.

There will be certain designated days throughout the school year that will be “Fun Dress Days” when the students get the opportunity to thematically dress out of uniform. Such days may include themes like “Sports” day or “Go Western” Day or “College” Day. These are days when students are encouraged to dress within the theme but not required. If they cannot or do not dress in the theme, the student is allowed to dress out of uniform as long as the attire does not break the dress code (length of shorts, no graphics, etc.).
