Dress Code

Since dress has a direct affect on attitude and the building of character, Riverview Baptist Christian Schools believes it is necessary to dress appropriately and modestly at all times and not to follow worldly fashion and styles in clothing or hair. It is the school’s firm belief that Riverview Baptist Christian young people must dress and act in a Christ-like example at all times in order for students to mature spiritually.
