Liberty's elementary and middle school programs consists of kindergarten through 8th grade. Each classroom is taught by a Christian teacher with curriculum from a Christian perspective. The class sizes are kept small (an average of 13 students per class) to ensure that each child gets the individual attention needed to succeed in each area. The curriculum is cohesive and builds upon itself each year for a strong and continuous knowledge base.
One of the fundamental purposes of school is to provide the foundation for developing a proper attitude toward education. In order to implement this, it is essential to create and maintain an effective teaching learning environment. Student attire impacts the teaching and learning environment. It can either promote a more effective educational environment, or it can disrupt the educational climate and process. Student attire that is acceptable for some social settings may not be acceptable for the educational environment of school. Liberty Christian School’s dress code is not designed to be a defining statement of right and wrong. We realize that each family will have various ideas on what type of apparel or appearance would be appropriate. We are not seeking to make a judgment on a family’s view of what is appropriate.
Our dress code is based on the biblical principles of modesty, neatness, and appropriateness. Modesty is mentioned often as an important character quality. (I Cor. 6:19-20, I Tim. 2:9, I Peter 3:3-4) Modest people don’t go out of their way to bring undue attention to themselves. Likewise, neatness and appropriateness are important as we seek to be ambassadors for Jesus Christ. We need to be examples for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, in purity. We also desire to give a good report and not be offensive in anything we do. (Col. 4:5) This suggests living differently than the world. (Titus 3:1-8) In addition, dress is to be distinctively masculine and feminine, reflecting a wholesome appreciation for God’s plan (Deut. 22:5) As we determine to glorify the Lord in all we do, these qualities help us to do that in the area of dress. God values people and relationships above clothing and outward appearance. (I Sam. 16:7)
It is also important to realize that parents, as the primary educators of their children (Deuteronomy 6; Ephesians 6), play a key role in this area of dress code. It is incumbent upon parents to guide and supervise their children in the selection of appropriate clothing. Accordingly, this dress code is intended to make known in as clear a way as possible the position, guidelines, and restrictions of Liberty Christian School in the area of dress.
Faculty members have the prerogative of asking students to change their attire if they feel the student is dressed in an inappropriate manner. Administration has the final say on all dress code policies.

We will endeavor to assign homework on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Length of homework will vary with each grade. For grades 1 through 6, it should take around 30 minutes. For grades 7 through 8, homework should total no longer that an hour to 1 1/2 hours.
Girls volleyball and boys and girls basketball teams are available for grades 5-8. Please contact the school for more information.
Grades PreK-8 all attend specialized music and physical education, and 1st-8th attend art classes. Grades 3-8 receive specialized instruction in writing as well.
Parent Classroom Involvement
We highly encourage parents to be involved weekly in their child's classroom. This not only shows your child how valued and important they are, but also gives you the chance to view what is going on in the classroom, get to know your child's friends and teacher, and learn what your child's strengths and weaknesses are academically and socially. There are various ways to do this from helping with reading groups, correcting papers, playing with the children at recess, reading to the classroom, and so much more. Please contact your child's teachers for ways that you can get involved.
