Heritage Standard of Dress

At Heritage, we desire that students have a standard of dress that is modest and neat. At all times, we try to honor the Lord in our appearance by keeping a high standard that requires modesty, neatness, and cleanliness. Therefore, the dress code is intended to clearly outline the expectations of our school and we reserve the right to determine if a garment is appropriate or inappropriate.

Standard Dress Code Requirements

  1. Students must be in compliance with the Standard of Dress prior to entering the school and continue until the end of the school day.
  2. All clothing must be properly sized, modest and unrevealing in cut, fit, and texture.
  3. Modesty is expected at all times at any school event or function.
  4. The Standard of Dress is for all school days unless special dress is approved by the administration.
  5. We recommend all apparel be purchased from the approved school vendors. Apparel not purchased from the approved vendors must be indistinguishable from the designs established on our school vendor website.
