Dress Code 2019

The Bible Institute strives to maintain a standard of dress and appearance that communicates modesty and discretion without magnifying or bringing undue attention to the individual. Modesty is a matter of Biblical principle, and discipline in the area of acceptable dress is a necessary part of life preparation regardless of a student’s future plans.
