Academy DRESS CODE
Our school uniform is a source of school pride; it is part of our legacy. The personal appearance of students, including the correct wearing of the school uniform as described, should contribute to their self-confidence and self-esteem and not – through lack of adherence - distract from learning. Therefore, students are expected to be neat, well-groomed, and in complete uniform at all times. Current fads in hair style, clothing, jewelry or shoes are not acceptable. The following is the uniform requirement at the Academy:
Early FALL & SPRING Uniform
Usually during September through mid- October, mid-April, May and June, students may wear a blue uniform golf shirt embroidered with the school name**. This replaces the tie, white shirt, and blazer. The St.AA golf shirt may be purchased through the school store.**
Physical education uniform
Students must be in complete uniform
for physical education classes. This includes:
NOTE: Grade 6, 7 & 8 only - WILDCAT sweatpants - mandatory; Grade 5 wears the regular St. AA sweatpants.
For physical education class day, ONLY students in Grades 5-8 have permission to wear St. AA Spirit wear items in place of the regulation uniform with the exception of the REQUIRED St. AA Phys. Ed. Uniform sweatpants as directed.
** Items sold at St. A.A. school store - Wildcat Wonders
Hairstyles: Students' hair cuts are to be neat and clean - no excessive length [Limit: mid-neck line] - shoulder length or longer is not acceptable); no bangs covering eyes. Hair should be styled away from the eyes. Hair styles should not become a source of distraction to oneself or others. Fad hairstyles that are considered by the administration as excessive and hair dying or extreme color changes are not acceptable. Facial hair is not permitted.
