Uniform Dress Code

Uniforms help students feel like they are part of a cohesive community. They foster school spirit and build unity. At Porter Christian Academy, we are aiming for students to appreciate one another as equals in the kingdom of God. We are instilling the value of being brothers and sisters in the family of God, rather than creating cliques and groups through "fashion statements."

Full uniform will be required each day unless otherwise announced by the Principal. Students are expected to arrive to school each morning in their entire uniform. Uniforms must be laundered on a regular basis and should appear neat and clean.

If a student starts school in the middle of the school year, parents will be allowed a two (2)-week grace period in which to purchase student uniforms. Otherwise, all students must be in uniform on the first day of school. Parents are required to purchase student uniforms from Parker Uniforms unless otherwise noted below.
