Student Dress and Appearance (Uniforms)
Romans 12:1-2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
I Corinthians 6:19-20 “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price….”
Students attending CCA are required to wear uniforms so that all students regardless of their parents’/guardians’ economic level are equal in social appearance. Parents are responsible for ensuring that the proper uniforms are acquired and worn to school and school events. (See parent/guardian agreement in Appendix B of this handbook).
The student’s uniform must be purchased through Lands’ End (on-line and CCA specific), Wal-Mart (on-line or storefront and must be George Uniform or Faded Glory brands only), Target (on-line or storefront and must be Cherokee Uniform brand only), or Dennis Uniform (on-line or storefront and CCA specific). Pants are to be khaki or navy in color, and shirts are to be red, white, or navy. CCA can provide you with catalogs with specific color and style information from which you may choose. Any leggings or “long sleeve undershirts” worn under school uniforms must be solid in color and either red, white, navy or black.
All students in 2nd grade and above should have their shirts tucked in while at school. 1st grade students will be required to have their shirts tucked in after Christmas break each year. Students may wear a CCA sweatshirt or CCA uniform sweater while at school. Jackets, coats, sweaters, or any non-CCA sweatshirts may not be worn in the classroom or lunchroom, while at school. They may be worn to school and while on the playground. Students must wear a uniform shirt (or t-shirt on Dress Down days) underneath any sweatshirt, hoodie or sweater while at school.
For safety reasons, no open toe shoes may be worn in school. Socks that show, should be solid school colors (red, white, blue, or black).
The 3rd Friday of each month is Dress Down for Missions Day. The CCA students support 2 missionaries each year by each bringing a $1 to school in order to Dress Down (wear jeans). Each month a check is sent to our supported missionaries. Students must wear long jeans (loose fitting, no holes, rips or jean shorts), CCA t-shirt or their regular school uniform.
Though uniforms make us LOOK the same, they do not make us BE the same. Underneath our identical covers we have different hearts, different minds, different temperaments and that is what makes us all different.
Girls’ hair should be clean, neat, and appropriate in color. No makeup, lipstick, eye shadow, mascara, eyeliner, or foundation is permitted. At the most two small earrings per ear positioned in the lower lobe are allowed. No other body piercing or body art (including temporary tattoos) is allowed. These regulations apply while at school and on CCA sponsored events and field trips.
Boys’ hair should be clean, neat, and appropriate in color. It should be kept cut above the collar, ears and eye brows. No earrings or other body piercing or body art (including temporary tattoos) is allowed. The regulations apply while at school and on CCA sponsored events and field trips.
