Dress Code

  • At The Creighton Academy, one of the most important aspects is creating autonomous learners and thinkers. We want our kids to make choices and advocate for themselves and we believe that starts by making decisions about clothing. We would like children and parents to make decisions about what to wear to school.

    Students must wear:

    • Students must wear clothing including both a shirt with pants or skirt, or the equivalent (for example, dresses, leggings, or shorts) and shoes.
    • Shirts and dresses must have fabric in the front and on the sides (under the arms).
    • Clothing must cover undergarments (waistbands and straps excluded).
    • The fabrics covering breasts, genitals and buttocks must be opaque.
    • Clothing must be suitable for all scheduled classroom activities, including physical education, science labs, and other activities where unique hazards exist.
    • Specialized courses may require specialized attire, such as sports uniforms or safety gear.

    Students may wear:

    • Hats (outside), including religious headwear
    • Hoodie sweatshirts ( overhead in class is not allowed)
    • Fitted pants, including leggings, yoga pants, and “skinny jeans”
    • Sweatpants, shorts, skirts, dresses, pants
    • Midriff-baring shirts
    • Ripped jeans, as long as underwear is not exposed
    • Athletic attire
    • Clothing with commercial or athletic logos provided they do not violate the guidelines in the "Cannot Wear" section
    • Sun-protective clothing, including but not limited to hats, for outdoor use during the school day

    Students cannot wear:

    • Violent language or images
    • Images or language depicting drugs or alcohol (or any item or activity illegal to children) or the use of the same
    • Hate speech, profanity, pornography
    • Images and/or language that create a hostile or intimidating environment based on any protected class
    • Visible underwear or bathing suits of similar design – visible waistbands or straps on undergarments worn under other clothing are not a violation.
