General Uniform Appearance & Guidelines

Students are expected to be well groomed and modestly dressed at all times. The students' attire should reflect pride intheir school. The uniform dress code is not a reflection of current fashion. Success of the dress code is based on cooperation between students, parents and the school. Students should take

care that the clothing or accessories they wear to school or school events not include emblems or images that may cause offense, bringabout discord, or signal disrespect among members of the Gre ater Atlanta Christian School community. School level administrators make the final decision regarding the acceptability of attire not specifically covered inthis dress code. The administration and faculty expects students to display a cooperative and respectful attitude in regard to uniforms.

Students are required to arrive on campus properly and neatly attired. Students who choose to come to school out of uniform will not be allowed to attend class until they are incompliance with the uniform policy.
