As an Enrollment Condition in all Divisions, each Student, Parent/Guardian, Sibling, Teacher, and Visitor to Liberty and Liberty events agrees that they will dress modestly according to this Liberty Dress Code. This Liberty Dress Code is designed to ensure that everyone is dressed modestly to promote a serious academic atmosphere; to eliminate distractions to learning; and to encourage relationships based on individual character rather than outward appearance.

  • For safety reasons, flip-flops & croc-style shoes are not allowed
  • Bare torsos, backs, shoulders, upper thighs, and revealing, provocative, or immodest attire is not permitted
  • Undergarments must not be seen through any clothing and must not be visible
