Uniform Requirements

uniformUNIFORM GUIDELINES In order to maximize time on task and decrease attention towards outside distractions, Excel Academy girls are expected to adhere to a formal Dress Code.  Anything deemed inappropriate or distracting by the administration may also be added to this policy. Clothing must be sized appropriately to fit the student.  Clothes may not be too big, too small, too short, or too tight.  Students in the building or participating in off campus activities are expected to be in Dress Code, including school performances, field trips (unless otherwise indicated), Saturday Academy, or during after school events.

It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that their scholar is in the proper uniform every day. You must agree to comply with the Excel Academy Dress Code.  Your scholar will not be permitted to begin the school day if she comes to school out of uniform.  When possible, students will need to remove all items that violate the uniform policy.  If a scholar’s shirt, pants/dress, or shoes do not meet uniform requirements, they will be given neutral cover-ups to place over the inappropriate attire for the day.  Scholars with recurring uniform violations will not be permitted to attend school until they are in the correct uniform.
