Uniforms

Please review Trinity Valley School’s 2016-2017 Official Uniform Policy

UNIFORMS/APPEARANCE

Trinity Valley School established a uniform for students on the premise that a dress code provides students with an opportunity to learn many valuable life lessons. The goal of the uniform is to ensure that all students are well groomed and properly attired. The School asserts that proper attire promotes seriousness of purpose and that developing the habits of being well groomed and well attired will serve as valuable preparation for adult life. When students collectively adhere to the uniform, they support respect and credibility among and between members of the community and allow us all to focus on the most worthy and meaningful goals. When students adhere to the dress code, they enhance school spirit and pride.

The uniform is not an effort to minimize self-expression; instead, it is an opportunity to look beyond the world of fashion to the matters of the heart and mind that truly concern and inspire us. The uniform demonstrates our belief that it is internal strengths, not external trimmings, which determine a person’s individuality and character.

The uniform should be worn neatly and properly at all times during the school day. Division heads and the Assistant Head of Upper School are the final arbiters of appropriateness on uniform matters. 

A complete listing of the uniform guidelines for grades K-12 is below:
