Dress Code

Dress Code

CCHS has a “standard of dress.” The purpose of our dress code is to encourage an environment that is conducive to learning. Research shows there is a direct correlation to a student’s performance and the dress code of the educational institution. The goal of the dress code is to address three areas: modesty, identity, and propriety.  Students will be asked to change clothing that is too tight, immodest, or inappropriate. Students are to be neat, modest, well-groomed, and in designated pants/shorts/skirt/shirt at all times during school hours.  Students should dress modestly when attending activities on the school campus outside of school hours.

Standard of Dress

For All Students

  • At no time should undergarments be visible.
  • Clothing exposing the torso or midriff, either front, sides, or back may not be worn. This standard includes during activities such as raising the hand, sitting down, picking up objects, etc.
  • Clothing must fit appropriately (not too tight or too loose).
  • Students may wear any CCHS shirt with jeans on Fridays. Jeans that are ripped or torn (or have simulated rips or tears) are not permitted.
  • All pants, capris, shorts, and skirts must be made of cotton-twill material.  They may not be corduroy, jersey knit, sweatshirt-type material, denim, black jeans, or be of a material containing any of elastane or spandex.
