- Uniforms should be clean and tidy—ironed when needed.
- Skirts should be no shorter than 3” above the middle of the knee cap—from the front and from the back. If a student’s skirt is too short, they will be required to purchase a new one. Please bear this in mind if a student is not done growing.
- Shirts must be tucked in at all times.
- All students must have their shirts buttoned to the second-from-the-top button as well as collar buttons buttoned down and cuffs buttoned. Students may not roll up their sleeves except during activities such as art, science labs, and playing outside during a break.
- If an undershirt is worn, it should be white.
- Hair should be styled in a way that is consistent with the spirit of this policy. Male students must wear their hair above the collar, eyebrows, and ears.
- Jewelry and makeup (if worn) should be simple and tasteful. No visible tattoos.
- Male students may not wear earrings, makeup, or grow facial hair.
Dress Up Uniform Shoes: Students are required to wear dress shoes on dress up days.
Girls: Black, brown, white, or navy leather closed-toe dress shoes, with heels no higher than 2″.

Non Dress Up Uniform Shoes: On non dress up days, students may express themselves in their footwear as long as they stay within these guidelines:
- Shoes must have a back or a back strap
- No flip-flops, Crocs, slippers, boots, high heels (over 2″)
- No shoes with inappropriate graphics
- Shoe color and style should be in good taste
Socks/Tights: There are no color restrictions on no-show socks. However, if a student chooses to wear longer socks or tights, they must be solid black, navy, gray, or white. Fishnets, footless tights, and leggings are not permitted.
