Dress Code

Student compliance with the dress code is ultimately the responsibility of both the student and the parents and is enforced by the faculty or administration. Parents are asked to help their children understand the purpose of the dress code: reminding all of the Christian dignity and equality of each person before God regardless of family financial situation; and to illustrate to students the serious and high purpose of Catholic education—forming the mind and character of each individual.  Consistent compliance with the dress code helps one grow in understanding of obligation, virtues of discipline and obedience; virtues which, when cultivated, naturally enhance respect for religious, parental and civil authority.
