Dress Code

In keeping with the school's desire to establish and maintain high standards, each student is asked to maintain a neat and tidy appearance at all times. Whether at school or not, Nelson Christian Academy students are ambassadors for Christ and are expected to dress and act accordingly. The school uniform has been designed for durability and appearance and should be worn by all students.
