The following updated dress code policy is now available for the upcoming 2022/2023 school year.
The dress code should be followed daily unless otherwise noted. The appearance of all students must be suitable and appropriate for school. The dress code is intended as a guideline in assisting all students in developing a Christ-centered attitude toward their outer appearance. All students are expected to be groomed and dressed appropriately for school and required school activities.
If a student is in violation of the uniform policy, the student will be asked to change and/or the parent will be called to bring a proper uniform. This policy is not intended to embarrass students or inconvenience parents. The school’s focus is on education, not dress.
The school administrator has the authority to implement and enforce the school dress code in a manner that is age-appropriate and considerate of sincerely held religious beliefs. Reasonable accommodation will be made by the school administrator for students involved in special duties, activities, or projects approved by the school. This includes, but is not limited to athletics, vocational classes, projects, physical education classes, special events, and other activities that require non-conforming dress on the school campus during a school-sponsored event.
SBCA school spirit shirts must be purchased from the school uniform store. The store will offer white, navy, grey, and red shirts for boys and girls.
SBCA collared shirts can be purchased from the school store or from an outside source. These shirts can be short or long-sleeved. They must be white, navy, or grey. They can contain a small logo with a size that can be covered by a quarter. Collared shirts must be an appropriate length and not oversized. Shirts must completely cover undergarments and the midriff area when sitting and standing and expose no cleavage. Low cut, halter, see-through, and/or spaghetti strap tops are prohibited.
Pants may be purchased from an outside source in these colors: blue denim, khaki tan, navy, or grey. Sweatpants, athletic shorts, and pajama material pants may not be worn. Pants must be secured at the waist and not sagging or tight-fitting.
- Boys: Pants or shorts
- Girls: Pants, shorts, skorts, skirts, capris, or jumpers
Note: Pre-kindergarten students may wear blue denim, khaki tan, navy, or grey dresses. Also, pre-kindergarten students may wear leggings that are solid navy and do not contain mesh material or cutouts.
Shorts, skorts, skirts, jumpers, and dresses must be an appropriate length. The bottoms of these items cannot be above mid-thigh or contain a slit. Shorts must be worn underneath skirts, jumpers, and dresses.
Jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, or hoodies worn in the building must be worn over a uniform shirt and must be solid white, gray, or navy blue. Items containing the school logo can be purchased from the school store. There are no restrictions to outerwear with regard to color or pattern when worn outside of the building.
All students must wear closed-toed shoes (no sandals or crocs) with no color restrictions. Shoes shall be worn at all times and as necessary conform to special class requirements (physical education, etc.).

High school students may wear hats purchased from the school store containing the school logo on Fridays.
