Dress Code

All students should practice modesty and good taste in dress. If a student arrives at school in violation of the school dress code, the school will contact the student’s parents immediately. 

 

While we applaud uniqueness, creativity, and individualism, a student's dress or hair should not draw undue attention to him/herself, and/or create a distraction.  The following is what is expected for student dress during the school day.

Please note:  Union Pointe Academy stands firm on the Holy Word of God and that God created man and woman in His image as two distinct but equal genders (Gen. 1:26–27).  In addition, we believe that individual gender is assigned by God and determined at conception (Ps. 139:13–16).

 

UPA requires boys to adhere to the boy dress code and girls to adhere to the girl dress code.

 

Union Pointe Academy reserves the right to make adjustments to the dress code if deemed necessary.
