Fayette Christian School believes that conservative, modest dress is not only pleasing to the Lord, but also conducive to better learning habits and conduct. The Bible states "That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ." Philippians 1:10
Even though Christians differ in what is considered "modest," FCS has carefully chosen garments that we feel would best suit the needs of the school. Students must wear uniforms to school beginning in 1st grade. Preschool and Kindergarten (K3, K4, and K5) are not required to wear uniforms. Please see the Student Handbooks for uniform details for high school students.

A. Kindergarten students are not required to wear uniforms; however, modest (knee length) dresses, skirts, or pants are required for the girls; pants and shirts for the boys.
