The Faculty and Administration of the School wish to maintain the standards of dress and appearance appropriate to serious academic pursuits. The Uniform Policy encourages pride in self, concern for others, and pride in School. All students are required to wear the uniform as designated by HCA before the beginning of the School year. Students who report to School out of uniform will be given a warning the first time. The second time, the parents will be called to bring appropriate attire or to pick up the child.

In addition, jewelry should be conservative, appropriate for the School environment, and not attract undue attention. Boys are not permitted to wear earrings or ponytails. Hair for all students should be clean, shaped, well groomed, and worn in a style that is not in any way extreme. Students should not display any body piercing or tattoos.

The School reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of any student’s appearance and grooming as a reflection of School standards.

Christians are expected to be modest in appearance. The uniform dress code of HCA is based on both Biblical standards and the need for children to learn to dress modestly and tastefully (I Timothy 2:9-10, 4:12). HCA reserves the right to inform parents that certain attire or hairstyles are not appropriate for our school.

HCA (teachers, staff & Administration), reserves the right to approach any student about his or her attire or appearance if any part of the dress code has been violated, or if any portion of their dress or appearance is questionable. The decision of the Administrator or designee is final. All attire should be properly fitting, neat in appearance, and meet school criteria.

Uniform Dress Code violations may result in, but are not limited to the following disciplinary measures which will be progressive in nature (measures are examples only and not intended to be exhaustive or sequential):

•Warning
•Detentions of varying length
•In-school suspension
•Parent being called to bring in appropriate attire or school providing appropriate item if available.

Repetitive violations may result in additional disciplinary action.
