Prom Behavior Code
The Maryland Homeschool Prom, sponsored by Christiana Homeschool Academy, was founded in 2009 by homeschooling parents to give their high school students a safe haven in which to interact, dance, socialize and have fun with other homeschoolers. Homeschooled attendees are not required to bring partners but are welcome to bring a guest of the opposite sex, preferably also a homeschooler, if they wish.
Please find the Prom Behavior Code below. Please make sure you read it and abide by the rules. This code was carefully crafted by the Prom committee members for your own safety and protection. We want you all to have a memorable evening, and trust you will cooperate and enjoy the party. This code will also be displayed at the check-in table and printed in the souvenir program. The Prom Committee has as its purpse and goal to provide a pleasant, fun, and safe environment for the high school students and their guests. To better accomplish this, all attendees are expected to abide by the following rules and guidelines for the duration of the dance.
DRESS CODE: All guests should be dressed in a manner which shows respect for themselves and for others. Clothing should not be suggestive or revealing, and should keep undergarments covered at all times. Specifically:
permitted to wear dresses which expose the belly, have plunging necklines, are excessively short, have extremely high slits, or are backless. Gowns should be well fitted and properly hemmed. Consider adding straps to strapless gowns for a more secure fit. Any clothing which leaves undergarments exposed is also not appropriate. If you are uncertain about the dress you have selected,
PLEASE EMAIL US A PICTURE.
We encourage a more modest approach to your dress selection. Scarves and leggings will be provided for attendees to wear in the event that the dress code is not adhered to. Wear comfortable, dance-friendly shoes or bring a pair of flats to change into as shoes must be worn at all times.

All attire will be reviewed upon check-in and any clothing issues will be dealt with at that time.
If you refuse to comply with any dress code issues at that time, you will not be permitted to enter the ballroom and a refund will not be issued due to non-compliance of dress code.

DANCING: Guests are not permitted to dance in a provocative or inappropriate manner, whether it is with a person of the opposite sex or not. Guests are not permitted to embrace or touch others inappropriately at any time.
SAFETY: Guests are expected to exhibit safe and courteous behavior at all times. No running, pushing, fighting, or hitting is permitted.
