Summer Dress Code


Students must be dressed in clothing which is traditional, conservative, and appropriate for school/camp. Clothing which is oversized, slovenly, rock-inspired, (heavy metal, rap, etc.), or unisex is not permitted. Hair styles are to conform to these general guidelines. 

Anything resembling gang clothing is not to be worn at school/camp (i.e., baggy pants or baggy shirts, “grunge” look, hats, caps, etc.).

If, in the opinion of the Administration or faculty, a student’s overall appearance (hair style, clothing, etc.) does not adhere to the scriptural philosophy and standards of Faith Baptist Schools, your child will be required to make the necessary changes.  All students must maintain school dress standards up to and including the last day of school/camp.

Any student failing to meet the dress code or hair requirements may not be allowed to attend class.  If this were to occur, there would be both a disciplinary and academic penalty for such a situation.

Students may not wear the following:

  • Hats/baseball caps/beanies
  • Sunglasses (in the classroom)
  • Tattoos (permanent or temporary)
  • Form-fitting or revealing clothing
  • Gang-related clothing or accessories
  • Clothing, hair, body markings, or body piercings that are extreme in nature or identified with philosophies that are inconsistent with those of Faith Baptist Schools (music groups, occult, etc.).

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

For dress violations, students/campers will be sent immediately to the School Office to call his/her parents to have the proper clothing brought to the School.  In a case where parents are unable to attend to their child, the student/camper will remain in the School Office for the remainder of the day.
