Being a student is not a passive/casual activity: the school dress code exemplifies this attitude. Just as the nature of a Mirus student’s education is intentional, directed, and purposeful, so is the manner of his/her dress. Our dress code is designed to maintain order and avoid distraction in the classroom. Uniforms will be worn to express union with our mission. In a culture in which personal expression is exalted, beauty is held in question, the good of our neighbor is subordinated to the desires of the individual, and even the biological gender of men and women as created in the image of God (male and female) is brought into question, it is the desire of Mirus Academy to glorify God in both the character and culture of the school.
1. Our actions and our attire should portray a heart of both modesty and humility.
2. Our actions and attire should seek to reflect respectful conformity to our biological gender.
3. Our actions and our attire should not seek to exalt the outward beauty of the individual student but rather seek to invest in and protect the virtue and character of that person.
4. Our actions and our attire should support the effort to the orderly operation of the school.
5. As we seek to invest in each other, our actions and our attire should support a school culture that requires a decreasing level of oversight in contrast to a culture of the individual that requires increased regulation and oversight and the loss of freedom.
In light of the above, we ask that the parents and students support a manner of dress that reflects the Christian, classical, and scholarly image of Mirus Academy. As such, Mirus Academy students should appear neat, clean, and modest during the school day, seeking not to distract others or solicit oversight by their appearance.
