TCA students are expected to dress respectfully on and off-campus when uniforms are not required. Examples, but not limited to:
- Shorts, skirts, and dresses are to be of a modest length
- The midriff is to be completely covered
- Clothing should not be sexually suggestive or revealing
- Clothing or accessories related to drugs, alcohol, tobacco, violence, criminal activity, intimidation, profanity, disrespect, or sexually suggestive language, messages or images are not allowed.
Parents are the ultimate overseers of their child’s attire for on and off-campus events. Dress Code is also a concern of the school and may be addressed by TCA Administration at school-related functions, on or off TCA’s campus. Students may be asked to change clothes or to leave an event if their attire is deemed inappropriate.
Dress guidelines for special events or a school-sponsored purpose (i.e. Homecoming, dances, student sections, extra-curricular activities, etc.) are at the discretion of Administration. Students may avoid the risk of being asked to leave or to change clothing at an event by honoring guidelines and by having attire approved in advance by an administrator if in question.
Non-Uniform School Days
There are occasions when students will be allowed to wear clothes other than the school uniform to school as a means to inspire school spirit, provide a break from uniform days, and/or promote interest in a specific activity or event. On these occasions, students are to follow the guidelines provided with an attitude of respect. Clothing must be modest and respectful at all times, including Spirit/Theme Days.
Items not permitted at school-related events, whether on or off campus and including Spirit/Theme Days, include, but are not limited to:
- Fake weapons - a toy that resembles a weapon to include, but not limited to, knives or guns (including water guns)
- Non-TCA flags
- Shopping Carts
