LWCS Uniforms and Dresscode

Thank you for visiting our LWCS Uniform Guidelines and Ordering Page. Before ordering uniforms on-line, please take the time to read the “Dress Code/Uniform Guidelines for Living Water Christian School” written below for your convenience. After you have thoroughly read these guidelines, please feel free to order your uniforms.

I have thoroughly read and understand the uniform guidelines and am ready to order.

Dress Code/Uniform Guidelines for Living Water Christian School

Living Water Christian School adheres to a specific dress code in order to foster an academic atmosphere free from concern and stress of competitive dress. We believe the dress code will help to increase the self-respect of students collectively and individually. A consistent dress code provides more time for parents, school staff, and students to focus on more essential activities. A student's appearance should give the impression that formal learning is taking place. All children will wear the designated school uniform unless otherwise specified by the administration for special events and/or activities. Any student not in the proper uniform will wait in the office until the parents are called and the proper uniform brought to the school.

Please remember that student dress code rules apply to all school functions. Adjustments to this policy may be made by the School Administration.

Living Water has two authorized companies for the purchase of school uniforms.

1. Queensboro Shirt Company in Wilmington, NC:

  • All items purchased must have one of the following school logo’s on them.
  • ABC logo
  • Warriors logo

2. Prep Sportswear:

Any items purchased at Prep Sportswear must have logos with “LW” or “Living Water" logo or design only. It cannot have just a “W” or just say “Warriors”. Uniforms must be identified by LW or Living Water

  • No Indian logos from Prep Sportswear can be on any uniform item.
