Approved School Attire Guidelines

A mandatory uniform dress code for students in K-5 through 12th grade has been adopted by St. John’s.  This dress code is optional for K-3 and K-4 students; however, a cobalt blue shirt with school shield is required for all field trips. 

BRANDS/VENDORS Polo or oxford shirts, jumpers, skirts, dresses, and PE shirts and shorts must be purchased from Lands’ End. P.E. uniforms are not required for elementary students. If you shop online at www.landsend.com/school, enter the school code: 9000-6994-9, or begin your order at this page. Pants, shorts, skorts, and capris may be purchased from any vendor provided that the garment is uniform style. Items previously purchased from the SJCA uniform store may still be worn. 

OUTERWEAR - Outerwear is defined as accessory items that are worn as a part of an outfit.  They may be worn in the classroom.  Outerwear (fleece jackets, sweatshirts, nylon jackets, and sweaters) must be cobalt blue or red and must be purchased from the SJCA boosters’ club, Land’s End, or come from the SJCA athletic department. The only logo that may be worn on outerwear is an official St. John’s Christian Academy logo.  Letterman jackets and cheerleaders’ fleece jackets may be worn as part of the school attire.

HEAVY COAT/JACKETS - Outside coats shall not be offensive in nature.  Heavy coats and jackets may be worn to school and then placed in your locker for the day.  These items may not be worn in the classroom.  Outerwear (above) may be worn in the classroom and when traveling from building to building. 

HATS - Hats are not part of the school uniform.  Hats should be placed in your locker for the day and not worn.   

SHOES - Closed toe leather shoes, tennis shoes, and sandals (boys’ sandals must have a heel strap).  No beachwear or flip-flop type shoes are allowed.

CHAPEL ATTIRE - Any acceptable dress code clothing may be worn to Chapel. 

FIELD TRIPS – uniform pants, skirts, or skorts with a cobalt blue SJCA logo shirt must be worn.  All students are to wear a belt and tuck in their shirts on field trips unless otherwise designated by the headmaster or his designee. 

OTHER -
Boys’ hair must be cut above the top of the shirt collar, above the eyebrows.

  • Boys Clothing must be of appropriate size.
  • Must be clean-shaven.
  • Extreme hair styles or colors are not permissible.
  • Tongue studs, visible tattoos, and more than two earrings per ear are not allowed.
  • Earrings are allowed for girls only.
  • Any clothing that has belt loops must be worn with a belt.
  • Pants, shorts, skirts, and skorts must be worn at the waist.

Consequences of minor violations of the dress code:  Teachers and staff will correct a student if there is a minor infraction.  If a student requires repetitive correction for minor infractions, the teachers may assign detention or make an office referral.

If a student comes to school with inappropriate attire, a parent/guardian will be contacted to bring appropriate clothing to school.  If the problem persists, suspension may result.

CONSEQUENCES FOR DRESS CODE VIOLATIONS

  • A parent/guardian may be called to bring correct proper school apparel to the school.  Any class time missed will be unexcused and the student may not be allowed to make-up the work missed.
  • A violation of the dress code is considered a disciplinary offense.  During the first two weeks of school in August, a student will receive a warning about any improper dress.  After the two week grace period, disciplinary measures will be taken.  Disciplinary measures will be taken by each lower school teacher.
