Reflecting present day societal influences, concerns about student attire have continued to emerge in the realm of education. By giving dress guidelines, the primary function of the school is realized - education of the whole child. To help fulfill the mission of instilling Christian values, emphasis is placed on pride in personal grooming, hygiene, and appearance. Students wear summer and winter uniforms for classroom instruction and physical education. These uniforms allow the children comfort, freedom, and flexibility to participate fully in the daily activities presented to them.
