Students will need to wear the school uniform daily to and from school as outlined in this section, and on all school field trips unless otherwise specified. Students are expected to be fully in uniform upon arrival at school. The student’s conformity to the dress code is primarily the responsibility of the student and the home. ACA’s administration reserves the right to make the final determination on any matter involving the appropriateness of student dress/grooming. 

If a student is found to be out of dress code, the teacher will issue that student a uniform referral specifying the uniform infraction. These referrals are sent to the office and are handled by the Principal. Students who are consistently out of dress could call into question their standing at ACA and could therefore forfeit their position at the school.

  

  • First Referral - Verbal reprimand and immediate requirement to comply 

  • Second Referral - Parents notified  

  • Third Referral - Lunch detention  

  • Subsequent referrals - after school detention or further disciplinary action 

If, in the opinion of the school, a student’s uniform infraction is significant enough to be a hindrance to the learning environment, the school reserves the right to withhold the student from class and/or require a student to go home and change clothes.

  • Students are not to write or draw on their skin, shoes, or clothing. 

  • We expect all students to be neat and clean. Tears, rips and holes need to be repaired soon after occurring.
