As Christians, we are constantly required to filter messages that we receive from the secular world.
While we live in the world and its culture, we are called to live counter-culturally (Rom. 12:1-2; 1 Peter
2:9). As such, our uniform policy is founded upon principles that strive to reflect a Christ-centered
environment. In a culture in which personal expression is exalted above all else, beauty is relative, the
good of our neighbor is subordinated to the “rights” of the individual, and even the biological gender of
men and women as created in the image of God (male and female) is questioned, it is the desire of
Providence Classical School to glorify God in both the character and culture of the school.
As ambassadors of Christ to each other and to the watching world, the following principles should guide our choice of school attire:
- Our actions and our attire should point to the Lord that we serve.
- Our actions and our attire should betray a heart of both modesty and humility.
- Our actions and attire should seek to respectfully reflect our biological gender.
- Our actions and our attire should not seek to draw attention to the individual student but rather seek to invest in and protect the virtue and character of that portion of the body of Christ that finds itself at Providence Classical School.
- Our actions and our attire should support the effort to maintain an orderly operation throughout the school.
- As we seek to invest in each other, our actions and our attire should support a school culture that requires an ever-decreasing necessity of oversight.
