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 2016-2017 Dress Code is posted here 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.
The dress code also helps to eliminate the social competition which fashions trends tend to promote. Skirts, skorts, and shorts must fall no more than 2 inches above knee. Shirts must be tucked in. All outerwear worn inside the building must follow the guidelines listed below. Overcoats should be removed and hung when entering the classroom.
*All policies are subject to change per ACA Board.
