Clothing Regulations and Personal Appearance

 

Christian Life Academy is a "Christian-school" and we teach our students to strive to represent the Lord Jesus Christ in the best way they can, not only academically but also spiritually and morally. In preparing students to face the world ahead of them and to function in today's society, we attempt to train them in all areas. One of these is the area of proper dress. Our dress code is not meant to be burdensome to the parent or student, but to assure a standard of dress that is modest in appearance, biblical in nature, and neat in appearance. In other words, we expect every student to dress for success.

I Timothy 2:9-10 reads, "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, (not tight or form fitting clothes) with shamefacedness (void of any makeup) and sobriety (self-controlled); not with broided hair, gold, or pearls, or costly array (no jewelry or anything that brings attention to self); But which becometh women professing godliness with good works." A good rule to follow for dressing modestly is (1) high enough necklines, (2) low enough hemlines, (3) and sleeves of reasonable length. (4) the actual hemline is where the split ends.

Lest you think the girls get all the attention read the verse just above I Timothy 2:9, verse 8 reads, "I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy (pure, unadulterated) hands, without wrath (violent passions) and doubting (debate or dispute)." You see God, who made man and woman, knew the man would be aroused by what they see, where as women are aroused by what they feel. Hence the scripture, I Cor. 7:1, "It is good for a man not to touch a woman."

We make no apologies for our dress code, and we assure you it is an important facet of our school program. All students should be clean and appear neat every school day in CLA uniform with shirts tucked in. Personal cleanliness is a must. Students should properly bathe, have clean and neat hair, clean hands and fingernails, brushed teeth, and older students must use deodorant.
