Modesty Guidelines

From time to time, students are allowed to wear casual clothes for events like spirit days, field days, and field trips. We ask that students always meet the following modesty guidelines when dressing for school events:

  • Avoid tight-fitting or low-cut tops

  • Sleeveless shirts/ tank-tops are never permitted

  • Tight jeans, or pants with holes, tears or rips are not appropriate

  • Shorts and skirts may be no shorter than two inches above the knee

  • Leggings worn as pants or leggings worn with skirts that are shorter than 2-inches above the knee are not appropriate (Leggings may only be worn with skirts or dresses of the appropriate listed length)

  • Sheer skirts/dresses that are long in length with a solid skirt underneath that is more than two inches above the knee are not appropriate

  • All logos, graphics, words/phrases or other writing must be appropriate for a Christian school environment, in other words, carry positive messages and be in line with Biblical standards. Certain graphics, including gargoyles, skulls, wizards, vampires, and other graphics of this nature are not appropriate for school.

  • Under garments should never be visible

  • Jewelry is not permitted 

For a more detailed account of the dress code, please see the handbook. 

Hillcrest red t-shirts and school sweatshirts are provided at registration.  The red shirt can be worn with school appropriate jeans (not torn or tight-fitting) on Friday and field trip days.
