Dress Code


We strive to build a dress code that allows for an appropriate balance of modesty, free expression, and personality all the while reducing unnecessary distractions. Unlike some schools, we do not have school uniforms, instead seeking to teach students life skills and decision making even in how they dress for class. Though no dress code is perfect, we work hard to provide meaningful guidance for our families as we all seek to approach daily life at the school.
