Uniform Guide

Student Uniform Policy

Uniform Philosophy

The purpose of the uniform dress code is to clarify a standard of appearance that reflects Biblical principles of modesty, appropriateness, and stewardship which will encourage students to bring glory to God (I Corinthians 10:31).

There are several other important reasons a basic uniform is required at BCA:

To dispense with competition due to outward appearance and in its place, emphasize inner beauty and character development.

To limit distractions and to focus on learning.
To enhance school spirit.
Adherence to the uniform dress code is a family responsibility.

General Dress Requirements

Students should be always clean and well-groomed.
All clothing must be in good condition (no rips, fraying, etc.).
All clothing must fit appropriately (not too baggie, not too tight and be the appropriate length).
Shirts must be tucked in.


All shoes are to be neat and clean.
No backless or open-toed shoes. i.e., clogs, flip-flops, etc. for safety reasons.

Specific Dress Requirements

Hem of skirts for girls (including jumpers and dresses) must touch the top of the kneecap when standing.
Shorts are to be no higher than 2 inches above the top of the kneecap for boys and girls.
