LCA UNIFORM AND DRESS CODE
The dress code at LCA has been adopted with the goal of a disciplined and learning-centered environment. We have found it best to limit the distractions that often occur when students wear fad-type apparel, and we recognize that students who look better tend to perform better. Our desire is that students present a wholesome, modest, clean-cut appearance rather than being alluring or drawing attention to themselves through their dress. The school dress code is to be adhered to at all school functions.
Grades 1-6 are required to wear the uniform as described in the handbook. A navy jumper and white blouse for girls and navy or red pullover shirt with blue jeans or navy pants for boys. Students in grades 7-12 are required to purchase their school uniform through the school office. Please see handbook for a detailed description. For all functions except regular school days, all students must dress according to the code below (condensed). Please see handbook for a detailed description.
