Uniform Program Information

“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” Psalm 133:1 (NIV)

The uniform program and the dress code promotes school unity and minimizes distraction. In addition, the dress code, through its restrictions, is intended to promote self-expression through the development of individual personality rather than expression through outward appearances. The dress code is in effect during official school hours. Parents are expected to ensure that students comply with the dress code policies.

While on campus, parents are expected to uphold the same standards of modesty that we put forth for our students as well.

“Lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.” Epehesians 4:1-3 (NLT)

The Horizon Prep Uniform Program varies slightly between different grade levels. Please refer to each individual product listing if you have questions about whether or not it is an approved piece for the student you are shopping for.

Please note - If an item is not included as an official Uniform Item it MAY NOT be worn on regular school days. This includes, but is not limited to team sweatshirts, trip sweatshirts, and more.

Appropriate Length

All Horizon Prep girls’ bottoms (skirts, jumpers, skorts, dresses) must adhere to the following guidelines in order to be considered in compliance with the dress code and modesty policies. This applies to all grade levels.

  • All girls skirts, skorts, jumpers and dresses must fall to within two inches of the knee.

  • Skirts and skorts are to be worn at the hips. They are not designed to be high-waisted.

  • Skirts and skorts may not be rolled at the waist.

  • Bike shorts are required under skirts at all times.

  • Parents are responsible to monitor skirt length with growth spurts. If the skirt, jumper, dress, or skort is shorter than the knee-length rule at any time, the student will be cited for a dress code violation. Long skirts (below the knees) are not allowed.

Girls who violate the skirt requirements (too short, rolled at the top, etc.) will receive three warnings. By the third warning that student will lose the privilege of wearing skirts for three days, and will be required to wear Horizon Prep uniform pants or shorts instead. If skirt violations continue beyond that, students can lose their skirt privileges through the end of the current term.
