FROM THE HANDBOOK–

DRESS CODE

Every attempt is being made to train our students for spiritual and academic excellence. The Biblical principles upon which the dress code is based are modesty, cleanliness, and neatness. Waller Christian Academy recognizes parental authority and depends on parents to support the dress code. Waller Christian Academy has adopted a L.E.S.S. Dress Code: Likable, Enforceable, Sensible, and Simple. The school administration reserves the right in determining violations of the dress code. If, in the view of administration, a student is in violation of the dress code, the student’s parents may be asked to pick up the student, to bring proper attire, or to take care of any other infraction.
