SLA Dress Code
Because the Bible stresses modesty, Shining Light Academy feels that dress standards are necessary for a school such as ours. At SLA, all students are expected to look and act of a manner that is becoming of a Christian. Sloppiness in appearance certainly tends toward sloppiness in school work and the student’s attitude. However, a clean-cut, orderly appearance will promote achievement. Since styles do change, sometimes rapidly, new pronouncements on clothing styles may be made by the administration during the school year. The following general Scriptural guidelines should be adhered to:
Modesty (I Timothy 2:9)
Distinction of the sexes (I Corinthians 11:14-15)
Identification with the Lord and not the world (Romans 12:1-2)
Appropriate dress for the occasion (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
If there is any question about an item being acceptable or unacceptable, the administration will have complete and final authority in determining what constitutes adherence to and violation of the dress code.
Please review the SLA student handbook section for specific dress code regulations.
