uniforms & Dress Code

Section XVII of PCS Handbook

Dress Code Policy

During school hours, Pathway Christian School’s (PCS) purpose is to involve students in academic learning. Appearance reveals who we are and affects how we conduct ourselves.

Because of I Corinthians 10:23-24, “all things are lawful, but not all things edify. Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor,” and 1Timothy 2:9, “likewise I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly…” we have two objectives in our dress code:

1. Modesty for all students and staff of PCS.
2. An environment free of distractions and conducive to learning.

There is “appropriate attire” for every situation as there is for school and related activities. Cooperative agreement in the dress code for those involved at PCS is imperative. While there are a wide range of beliefs regarding personal appearance, it is important to lay aside personal preferences/beliefs for the best interest of the entire school family.

This list of guidelines is intended to help parent(s) and students promote the goals of PCS to honor the Lord in grooming and dress. Following are two major principles the dress code is based on:

MODESTY – defined as neither bold nor self assertive; a body covered in such a way as to ultimately honor the Lord.

NEATNESS – defined as clean, tidy, properly fitting, and in good repair.
