Please read all information regarding FBA’s Dress Code Policy. All students are expected to adhere to these guidelines. Students who arrive out of uniform will be issued an approved uniform item, the parent will be notified, and the incident will be documented. The item must be returned (washed) the following school day.

The following guidelines listed below are concerning accessory color, style and appearance:
Belts: These must be worn at all times (if clothing has belt loops). PreK students are not required to wear a belt.
Tights & Leggings: Navy, White, Red, Grey, or Almond/Khaki SOLID COLORS only. Tights & Leggings can be worn under approved FBA bottoms, and cannot be worn without a skirt or dress over them. PreK girls may wear leggings. (See above for approved colors.)
Shoes: These must be closed toe and closed heel. Middle & Upper School students only (6-12) may wear sandals (not flip flops or slides) on non-PE days.
Socks: These should be consistent with the overall uniform look. No extreme styles or colors (i.e. bright colored stripes or polka dots). This is at the discretion of the administration.
Long Sleeve Shirts: Solid colored red, white, grey, or navy blue shirts or turtlenecks may be worn under FBA uniform shirts. There is to be NO writing, or branding visible on the sleeves or through the uniform shirt (example: white uniform shirt where you can see a logo or brand through the shirt).
Students should consider their body shape (no extremely tight apparel) when purchasing uniforms to ensure that they adhere to the following specific guidelines: All school attire should be modest, neat, non-frayed, no holes, and clean. No cross-dressing. This is at the discretion of the administration.
Students may not have distracting or extreme hairstyles (i.e.- mohawks, etc.) or color. This is at the discretion of the administration. Boys’ hair styles must be clean, neat, mid- ear, off the collar, and above the eyebrow line. Facial hair must be kept very neat. No beards are allowed. This is at the discretion of the administration. Tattoos of any kind are not allowed. Boys are to have no piercings. Girls are to have no out-of-the-ordinary piercings, such as facial piercings, but are allowed to have ear piercings (but no gauges).
Our prayer is that each parent would consider the fact that we are not to be “conformed to this world” as stated in Romans 12:2. “Purity, safety, focus on learning, and preparation for the future should be considered when purchasing school attire. 1 Timothy 4:11-12 states, “Prescribe and teach these things. Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity show yourself an example of those who believe.”
