Reaching STUDENTS…Building LIVES
Acadiana Christian School promotes the education of Christian values in our students and lets these values be the guiding force behind life at our school. We remain dedicated to teaching the truth of God’s word so we promote His godly principles in every aspect of school life. Through programs like the ACS Spirit Committee to the unity of our dress code, ACS student life is all about Reaching STUDENTS and Building LIVES.
A dress code goes a long way in producing a peaceful atmosphere at Acadiana Christian School. There are several important reasons why a uniform is required at ACS:
- To de-emphasize outward appearance and stress in its place the need for inner beauty and character development.
- To serve as an economic measure for parents.
- To enhance school spirit.
The regular uniform is worn each Monday-Thursday. Every Friday is Spirit Shirt Day. On the 1st Friday of each month, students can pay $1.00 (to support athletics) to wear a modest pair of blue jeans.
Students are required to be in their uniforms during school hours and must arrive and leave school in dress code. Other than dressing out for athletic practices, students are to remain in uniform during the school day, unless given special permission.
In cold weather students are encouraged to wear lined jackets available from uniform suppliers. Students may wear any jacket/coat to school, but only official school jackets, sweaters, or sweatshirts will be allowed in the building. Personal jackets/coats may not display any form of inappropriate advertising nor may jackets from any other school be worn on the school campus.
Parents will be contacted if a student repeatedly comes to school wearing improper uniform attire for a conference to take place to correct this problem.
Official ACS School Spirit Sweatshirts are available in the school office. They may be purchased year round and may be worn at all times.
Official ACS School Spirit Shirts are available in the school office and worn on designated School Spirit Days or for field trips, as designated.
ALL UNIFORMS must be purchased at one of the following suppliers:
