Dress Code

    All students are to dress neatly, cleanly, and modestly for school. Students are to dress in a manner similar to the way they would dress if they were working professionally in the marketplace. Christians’ dress and appearance should reflect our requirement to show love and respect towards our neighbors and should reflect positively on Tri-City Christian Academy (Philippians 4:5). Conformance to all dress code and appearance standards is required from the time the student, faculty, or staff member arrives at school until they depart.

    A guiding principle of a Christian school’s dress and appearance guidelines should be an emphasis on displaying unity within the Christian community rather than an excessive calling of attention to oneself. (Philippians 2:4)

    Compliance with both the spirit and the letter of the dress and appearance has proven to greatly enhance both the academic and the spiritual atmosphere of our school. Teachers will communicate any dress and appearance code infractions to the applicable Department Director. The applicable Department Director will make all necessary communication to parents regarding dress and appearance code infractions according to their discretion.

Students may wear Eagle sweatshirts during inclement weather with the individual teacher’s express permission for an individual class.

    Dress code is the norm for most school days. Every Friday students will be allowed to “dress down” as a fundraiser ($1.00 per Spirit Jean Day) for the TCCA Yearbook or as specified by their Department Director or the Administrator. All shirts/sweatshirts worn on Spirit Jean Days must be TCCA athletic wear, which is purchased through our school’s Athletic Department or, TCCA logo wear shirts.

   Hair should be styled conservatively and be a natural color. Radically sensational styles and colors are not acceptable. Boys’ hair should be neat and trimmed and should generally be shorter than girls’ hair. (I Corinthians 11:14) Students whose hair requires cutting or coloring will be given one week to meet the requirements and the parents will be contacted. Students who fail to comply within one week may be asked to stay home.

PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

It is important for parents to ensure their child is dressed in compliance with the published TCCA Dress Code. The school administration views this as a parental commitment and responsibility and believes that dress code issues should be addressed and corrected at home rather than being left as dress code infractions that have to be addressed and corrected at school
