Student Dress Code

CCS’s dress code is intended to help our students dress modestly, according to traditional Christian standards. All students, parents and teachers must fully accept the dress code and must cooperate to maintain and enforce it. The administration has tried to be as specific as possible. However, if you are in doubt about the appropriateness of a particular style of clothing, please contact the school office before sending your child to school.

Cornerstone Christian School does not have uniforms for students; however, CCS has established the following dress standards:
1.   All clothing should be neat, clean and in good repair. No holes or cuts in clothing.
2.   No bike shorts, frayed or cut-off clothing.
3.   Dresses, shirts and tops must cover entire shoulder and extend below the waist. Visible cleavage and bare midriffs are not allowed.
