Uniform & Dress Code

At Grace Covenant Academy, we require all students to wear school uniforms. Uniforms can be purchased through our exclusive uniform provider, Lands’ End.

Why Uniforms?

Uniforms at GCA help to ensure a standard of modesty and neatness which glorifies God and helps students focus on academics.

As you keep this goal in mind, we trust that our uniform policy will prove to be more of a blessing than a burden for your family. Students are expected to be in uniform from the time they enter the facility until the time they leave the facility.

Lands End

Uniforms must be purchased through our exclusive provider, Lands’ End, before the first day of school.

School Code: 900140856

Khaki Pants

NOTE- Skirt length: Skirt length should be at the knee. Currently, Lands’ End does not indicate how long the skirt is for the various sizes. If you have a girl with long legs, we suggest that after you select the skirt, click on the “Fit and Size” button. The grid will tell you how tall the girl is for which they made each size skirt. Estimate by that for now. We are asking Lands’ End to show the skirt length in inches for each size. Families with an especially tall or slender girl might need to buy a size larger and pin the skirt at the waist or take a simple tuck in it until she gains more girth.

-Navy or Khaki Shorts (They must be 3 inches or less above the knee.)
