Uniforms

Dress Code

Grand View Christian Academy believes it is necessary to dress appropriately and modestly. It is the school’s firm belief that Christian young people must dress and act differently from the world. The teaching of Biblical separation is a vital part of the school’s program. The following standards are to be adhered to on campus and/or during any school/church-related activities. Students must wear the school uniform at all school functions, unless otherwise instructed. Should students come to school dressed without the proper uniform, parents will be expected to either bring their children a change of clothes or take their children home until they can return in uniform dress. Any article of dress that the administration considers inappropriate to the occasion will not be allowed. All school uniforms can be purchased from Dennis Uniform online, GVCA School Office, and other stores that carry appropriate uniforms . Please check with the school office for questions.

General Dress Code Rules

Students are expected to be neat and well groomed. Clothing size should be appropriate for the size of the student.

Student Dress Requirements for School Activities
