VCA Preschool Dress Code
Students who attend Valley Christian Academy must present a neat, attractive appearance. Students’ appearance will reflect modesty and decency to promote a learning environment that is free from unnecessary distraction. The safety of our students was also taken into account in the establishment of this dress code. The following rules will govern the appearance of our students:
All students will wear solid khaki or navy (twill or corduroy) pants. Knit pants are not permissible. No jeans of any color are allowed. Pants are to be neat and presentable, exhibiting a normal degree of wear. They must be worn properly around the waist, not extending below the shoes. Pants with frays, tears, ragged edges, patches, holes, any type of hand-printed markings, or extreme styles are not permitted.
Solid khaki or navy shorts or capris may be worn in warm weather but must be no shorter than three inches above the knee. Girls may also choose to wear skorts, which may be no shorter than the top of the knee when standing.
Each student will wear a solid polo shirt in a school approved color. Acceptable colors are royal blue, white, yellow, navy, or grey. Students may also wear solid long sleeve or short sleeve button down shirts in white. Students are not permitted to wear heavy jackets or coats in the classroom. Cardigans or lightweight jackets may be worn in the building as long as they are school colors or neutral.
As an alternative to pants, girls may wear solid khaki, navy, or plaid skirts or jumpers. They are to be no shorter than the top of the knee when standing. Girls may wear neutral-colored tights and socks with skirts and jumpers. White blouses will be worn under jumpers. Solid white or navy leggings may be worn under skorts or jumpers. Slider shorts should be worn under dresses or skirts in the absence of tights or leggings.
Shoes must have toes, sides, and heel enclosed. Sneakers or athletic shoes are preferable. White, khaki, or navy socks are to be worn. Girls may wear pantyhose in navy, white, or neutral tones. No sandals, flip-flops, or boots are allowed. (Rain boots are allowed when necessary.)
Jewelry must be kept to a minimum and must not be a distraction. (For reasons of safety, please avoid loose jewelry). Earrings are acceptable only for girls. Hairstyles should be neat and tidy.
Boys’ hair should not touch their eyebrows or extend past the top of the collar. Extreme hairstyles (such as mohawks, bright hair colors, and feather extensions) are not permissible.
Please send a complete change of clothing, including socks and underwear, marked with the child’s name to the school.
