The following guidelines of dress for the students of Ashland Christian School have been thoughtfully addressed and approved by the School Board and Administration. The dress code guidelines assist the educational process in realizing the educational goals of Ashland Christian School and are supported by principles found in the Word of God: Titus 3:1-2, Romans 13:1&5 – Submission to Authority, Roman 12:1-2, I Corinthians 6:19-20 – Unconformity to the world’s pattern. These guidelines apply to any school activity unless otherwise directed by the ACS office. The school administrator will be the final arbiter of appropriate student dress and grooming.
