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 emphasis of FBA’s dress code policy is on students’ uniforms being modest, neat, clean, and non-distracting. The FBA administration reserves the right to ban a certain type of clothing. 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. I 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.”
