Overall


The biblical principle underlying all standards of dress and grooming is modesty.  Modesty applies not only to common decency but also to the matter of calling undue attention to oneself.  An appearance that makes a person a public spectacle is as inappropriate for the Christian as clothing that calls inappropriate attention to the body. The clothing and grooming of our students should be appropriate in both facets of modesty.

 

While at school, student dress will be governed by the Academy uniform program.  Students are to be neatly and appropriately dressed for all NSBA sponsored activities. Students are not allowed to attend class without meeting NSBA's Uniform Policy standards. Students in violationof the Uniform Policy may be asked to report to the office to contact parents so the violation can be corrected. Consideration may be given by the administration in circumstances involving new students or difficulties in ordering required portions of the uniform. 

 

NorthSide Baptist Academy uses Lands' End as the provider for the student uniforms. School clothing must be purchased from NSBA's Lands' End website, and it must be worn and fit the student according to the design description on NSBA's Lands' End website.
