Shawnee Mission Christian School

Dress Code

Students of Shawnee Mission Christian School will abide by the following guidelines and requirements for school dress. Although dress style and other personal standards in and of themselves do not denote spirituality, no aspect of the Christian testimony is as obvious as that which relates to appearance. While we realize that the Bible does not specifically tell us how we should dress or how our hair should be cut, it does give us some principles to apply. In light of these principles, we are setting the institutional standards for our school. It is not our intention to say that a Christian who does not meet our standards is sinning, but only that our students must meet the standards in order for us to be consistent in our enforcement. General Scriptural guidelines for dress are:


  • Modesty ( I Timothy 2:9; II Timothy 2:22 )

  • Distinction ( Deuteronomy 22:5;
    I Corinthians 11:14 – 15 )

  • Identification with the Lord and not with
    the world ( I Timothy 4:12; Romans 12: 1–2;
    I John 2: 15 – 17 )

  • Appropriate dress for the occasion.
