Bell Shoals Baptist Academy requires dressing in a way that supports our rigorous academics and is honoring to God. Students are to be neat, modest, well-groomed, and in designated pants, shorts, skirts, shirt, dresses at all times. The required attire includes a school uniform shirt with dockers style shorts, pants, or skirts. Shirts must be purchased through a school uniform provider. Parents are also encouraged to set an example by following modest dress guidelines when on the school campus and at school activities.
Uniform code interpretation is at the discretion of BSBA staff. Parents of students in violation of dress code policies will be notified.
