Dress Code

Sierra View Junior Academy approaches a student’s appearance, and therefore the dress code, from a Biblical perspective. 

Dress Code - SVJA

The practical application of these principles in clothing and appearance is intended to de-emphasize the love of self-display and preoccupation with conformity to changing fads. While attending Sierra View, students will follow guidelines that have been chosen with the following Biblical principles as a guide: 

  • Modesty 
  • Neatness 
  • Simplicity 
  • Cleanliness 
  • Healthfulness 
  • Attractiveness 

Below you will find the guidelines of what students should wear to school as well as to school sponsored activities/performances.  School personnel will make the final decision regarding appropriate school attire. In matters of opinion, the judgment of teachers and administration will prevail. While this is not a uniform, it is a dress code. Most jobs require a dress code too, whether spoken or unspoken, so meeting the requirements of our code shows respect.


  • Polo style only at all times.  A sweater covering a t-shirt is not a substitution for a polo style top.
  • Solid color or with an appropriate pattern. 
  • Sierra View Junior Academy T-Shirts may be worn on Fridays and should be worn for field trips. 


  • Solid color without a pattern.
