ACA maintains a dress code in order to underscore ACA’s seriousness of purpose by encouraging students to think of their attire as an aspect of their work and to promote a sense of unity with the school and with the students as a group. All students are required to abide by the dress code whenever they are at school or at school-related functions. The 2018-2019 Dress Code is posted on the ACA website. On Wednesday students are to wear “chapel” attire, and on Thursday students may wear an ACA T-shirt with dress code appropriate attire.
Teachers and administrators will inspect students when they arrive. Parents of those students who are not in compliance with the dress code will be telephoned to provide the appropriate items within a reasonable period of time.
