Dress Code

 

We encourage grooming habits that will present a modest, wholesome, and healthy Christian appearance.   The idea behind Riverview Academy’s dress code is to create a climate of caring and learning through interactive classroom instruction.  We believe the way a student presents himself/herself in cleanliness and outer attire has an influence on their scholastic achievement, their self-esteem, and acceptance by their peers.  

 

 

Shirts/Tops:

  • Any color Polo-style shirt is acceptable, long or short-sleeved. 

  • Solid color turtlenecks or long-sleeved, solid colored t-shirts may be worn underneath of a Polo shirt.
