Dress Code Philosophy

The purpose of a dress code in a Christian school setting is to exemplify standards of appearance that reflect human dignity as God’s image-bearers on earth. The RCS standards of dress and grooming are in keeping with Christian ideals we seek to establish in those who attend our school. We have set a moderate age-appropriate tone, avoiding the extremes of both legalism and liberalism. There are four components the school board considers when setting guidelines for grooming standards:

  • The issue of modesty
  • The issue of safety in class and on the campus
  • The way RCS staff and students represent Godly character to the community
  • The student attire being conducive to a serious academic environment
