Uniform Policy & Guidelines

Truth, Beauty, Goodness

One of the tenets of a classical and Christian learning environment is that all that we endeavor to do is focused on revealing Truth, Beauty and Goodness unto the Glory of God, our Creator, Designer, Teacher, and Lord. 


Special places have special rules & etiquette.

Uniforms are important to classical & Christian education because they are part of creating a school culture of Beauty by fostering:

  • mental & physical preparation for the vocation of “student”
  • focus on first things first
  • excellence in work ethic
  • self-discipline
  • academic success
  • neatness & modesty

 


Our uniform policy
is meant to REVEAL Beauty,
not to stifle it.


Whether it's music, art, sports, or academics, Geneva Academy allows students to express and define themselves beyond their clothing labels and fashion styles. A unique individual is developed not from appearance, but rather, character, personality and skills.  The students of Geneva Academy belong to a community with a common purpose. Just as those in the military, on a sports team, and professionals in service careers also dress in uniform, our students are set apart for their common goal: to Learn & to Learn to LOVE what’s beautiful, true and good. 

Our vision and mission are to train up students who are first Christians and cultivate in them rightly ordered affections or LOVES: love God first and then our neighbor. In many respects, the uniform is the face of Geneva Academy.  

1 Corinthians 10:31 states, “Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”  We believe this principle applies to dress. Geneva Academy students represent the school, their families, themselves and the Lord God; their appearance should reflect that. 

American culture is known for its emphasis on individuality and personal comforts.  Geneva Academy acknowledges that these impulses may make adhering to the Dress and Uniform Code a challenge within some households.  Nevertheless, for the reasons stated above, all parents are asked to ensure in their children outward compliance and inward acceptance of the standards.
