Dress Code – detailed .pdf download with signature form available here

The dress code policy begins when the student arrives on campus and will be enforced accordingly.

A student enrolled midyear or during the semester will have no more than five school days to meet dress code requirements. Dress pants (preferably in khaki), skirts, dresses, and collared shirts will be acceptable on those days. Jeans will not be permitted.

Purpose Statement 

We believe that a dress code is conducive to good study habits and that physical appearance and self-image are closely related. Thus the student’s quality of appearance upgrades the student’s attitude toward self, others, their school, and responsibilities.

Responsibilities 

The student’s appearance is a parental as well as a personal responsibility. We count on you, as parents, to help your child to be properly dressed each day. Therefore, any actions taken by ILCA to enforce the dress code will be primarily directed toward the parents, though such actions will, by necessity, impact the student himself. Each student is responsible for adhering to regulations regarding dress codes and personal appearance at school and school functions. This adherence is an indication of the student’s willingness to submit to authority, to abide by school regulations, and express an attitude of appreciation for being a student at ILCA.

All teachers, both full and part-time, are responsible to see that dress code regulations are met. Infractions, detentions, and/or suspensions will be given to students violating the ILCA dress code. Dress code infractions will be handled through the Headmaster’s and Associate Administrator’s office upon receipt of a teacher-generated e-mail stating the violation. Some dress code violations will require a parent to bring an appropriate uniform in order to bring the student into dress code compliance.

In order for the student to comply with the spirit of the dress code, ILCA administration has the final authority on any look that is distracting from the overall appearance of the student.

Any special clothing needs for a student may be brought to the attention of the administration for consideration.

Romans 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
