Dress Code


 

Dress Code Header

Rockford Christian Schools’ dress and appearance code aims to assist in providing an atmosphere conducive to attentiveness and learning. We desire clothing and appearance to be neat, clean, and modest without extremes. We recognize that scripture does not prescribe proper dress; however, it does give guidelines regarding modesty, appearance, and conduct.

Students enrolled at Rockford Christian Schools are expected to wear the correct clothes in good
repair to school each day. The official school uniform company is Land’s End. Uniforms can be
purchased from other suppliers if they comply with style, fabric, and exact color to the regulation
garment.
