Uniform Dress Code Policy

Dress Code for the 2018-2019 School Year

St. Agnes School is dedicated to providing its students with an educational environment conducive to the learning process. We believe that it is necessary for students to dress appropriately and not draw attention away from their studies at school. Therefore, St. Agnes enforces a uniform dress code. Not adhering to the guidelines set by the school undermines the academic climate at the school.
