God has created us in His image and to glorify Him. Christian Crossings academy students are to dress modestly at all times, not to please themselves, but to please God. The Dress Code encourages pride in self, concern for others, and pride in School. CCA students are expected to be in full uniform each School day, most field trips, and for certain School programs, with strict adherence to the Dress Code. The uniforms must be of appropriate length, fit, and overall condition.
French Toast currently serves as CCA’s preferred uniform vendor. All new items of clothing must be purchased from French Toast School Uniforms at https://www.frenchtoast.com/schoolbox/schools/Christian-Crossings-Academy- QS5JUSS. In addition, spirit shirts may be purchased from the front office.
On Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, the students should wear regular school uniforms.
Boys’ regular school uniform: CCA monogrammed polo and navy or khaki shorts or pants only. The shorts and pants should be flat front and uniform-style and not skinny or slim fit. No cargo shorts or pants are allowed.
Girls’ regular school uniform: Girls in Kindergarten through 5th Grade must wear the CCA monogrammed polo and plaid skirt or the uniform jumper. Girls must wear shorts under jumpers. Girls in Upper School wear the navy uniform skirt with the CCA monogrammed polo. All skirts and jumpers must be no more than three inches above the knee.
On Wednesdays and for designated special occasions, students will wear chapel dress uniforms.
Boys’ Chapel Dress: Long pants or shorts with monogrammed light blue dress shirt.
Girls’ Chapel Dress: Girls in Lower School wear the plaid skirt with white monogrammed button-up blouse. Girls in Upper School must wear the navy skirt with white button-up monogrammed blouse.
Shoes and Socks:
Students are to wear closed toe shoes/sneakers and socks every day. No sandals, crocs or heels higher than 2”. They are to be a solid color of black, tan, white or navy. For example: Black Nike sneakers must have a black logo but may have white soles (not Neon) since it’s very difficult to find ALL black. We are trying to avoid bi-colored shoe/sneaker that promote a specific brand. Any shoes that have bi-color patterns are not dress code. Students may change into sneakers (of your choice) before and after gym period ONLY. They are not to be worn outside of P.E., including the spirit uniform days on Fridays.
All socks should be solid white, navy, or black. Socks should be no-show, ankle, or crew cut. Girls in Lower School may also wear knee socks.

Lower School students should not wear make-up. Upper School students’ make-up must be modest - no heavy/dark make-up. Nail polish for all girls must be clear or light-colored. The School reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of any
