Uniform Policy

Uniform policy

The dress code at Veritas Classical Academy is designed to assist in promoting an atmosphere of learning. We want all of our students to strive for a clean, modest, and attractive appearance. Uniforms are a fundamental part of the school culture at Veritas Classical Academy. They allow our students to focus on the task at hand, learning, and to be free of the peer pressures that fashion trends can create. They also convey to visitors a proper scholarly and respectful appearance.  All students are required to wear uniforms. There will be special occasions during which our students will be permitted to wear non-uniform appropriate attire, suitable to the event. At no time will we use “non-uniform days” as a fundraiser for the school.  Our teachers and staff will also maintain a neat and modest appearance.

 

Pre-K/Kindergarten – 6th Grade Dress Code

In general, girls may wear navy/grey/khaki/plaid skirts or jumpers or navy/khaki/grey pants with a belt and solid color long or short sleeve polos in navy, white, or grey or white blouses. Boys may wear khaki, navy or grey pants with a belt and solid color long or short sleeve polos in navy, white, or grey or white oxford shirts.

7th – 12th Grade Dress Code

Students in the upper school are entering young adulthood and are asked to be good role models for the younger students in conduct, virtue, and appearance.  The upper school uniform is distinguished by a tie and Academy jacket worn daily.  Only upper school students may wear a jacket and tie.

Young ladies may wear navy/grey/khaki/plaid skirts or navy/khaki/grey pants with a belt and a white long or short sleeve blouse with a grey, navy or plaid tie.  All skirts must fall at the middle of the knees or longer.  Young men may wear khaki, navy, or grey pants with a belt and a white oxford shirt with grey, navy, or plaid tie.
