School Uniform Policy

School uniforms have been a part of Catholic schools since their inception. They serve multiple purposes in enhancing the environment for children. Uniforms create a sense of oneness preventing children from determining their identity or others by the clothes they wear, the name brands, and the endorsements on their sneakers, etc. Our faith tells us that God has created us all equally; that no one person is better than another. We are all cherished and loved by God, because God made us.
