Land's End Uniforms
Trends and fashions vary from one year to the next and significant advertising pressure is focused on young people to adopt the latest fad. Sometimes, even Christian young people can be caught up in styles that represent philosophies and lifestyles that are not Christ-like.
Because we are more concerned about matters of the heart than outward appearance, we have chosen to require specific uniforms for all students enrolled at FBCA. Our goal is to keep the focus on the child, not the clothing. These uniforms are to be purchased from our school designated supplier, Lands’ End.

The Dress Code is designed for these purposes:
- To train students to dress in a conservative, traditional, and modest fashion.
- To create a positive disciplined environment in the school.
- To assist students in concentrating on academic achievement rather than on clothing competition.
- To eliminate immodest or inappropriate fashions.
- To help reduce peer pressure.
- To help parents and students with financial stewardship.
- To create a positive image in the community.
- To provide an opportunity to show and teach respect for authority.
The cooperation of the student and parent is necessary in maintaining the standards of the dress code. A student’s appearance is a family responsibility. Therefore, any actions taken by FBCA to enforce the dress code will be primarily directed toward the parent, even though such action will impact the student himself.
Dress Code Compliance:
Dress code compliance is about attitude. We believe that dress standards will be required throughout life. It is our goal to teach compliance and encourage cooperation because it simply is the right and appropriate course of behavior. Students who “fight” the system are learning habits which will have negative outcomes on into adulthood. Therefore, dress code violations will be addressed as noted in the Conduct System.
Free Dress Days:
On “free dress” days students should wear clothes that maintain modesty. Shirts must have sleeves, cover the midriff area and show no cleavage. Shorts and skirts should not be shorter than 3 inches above the crease of the back of the knee. Shoes should follow the regular uniform guidelines with the exception that flip flops may be worn. Pants/jeans should follow regular guidelines and not be too tight or have holes. Pajamas, sweats, and slippers are not permitted, but caps are allowed (facing forward).
Administration reserves the right to make the final decision concerning dress and hair codes on “free dress” days.
