Uniforms & Dress Code

Details about the dress code can be found on page 16 of the 2021/2022 Handbook.

Uniforms from 2020/2021 will be allowed for one more year if in good condition. Please purchase all new uniforms according to the 2021/2022 guidelines.

UPDATE: Our partnership with Lands End has ended. We have switched to the local company, Flynn O'Hara.

 Upperclassmen hold the responsibility as Standard Bearers for younger grades. Please ensure that your uniform meets the high bar that has been set. 

Note: Upper School students are allowed to wear their uniforms from earlier grades if they are in good shape, though we ask that you do not mix and match Upper and Grammar uniforms.

Shoes must be a solid color and in good condition. Embellishments like neon stripes or glitter are not allowed. Military/Doc Martin or hiking boots are no longer allowed. Students must have riding boot or work-savvy boots only. Heels must be lower than 2" tall (no stilettos). PE shoes must be nonskid soles. 

If you have polos from previous years, they are no longer usable. Only FOUNDERS in gold will be allowed (with or without the bell). Please contact Monogram on the Mound if you have any embroidery needs. 

PE Uniforms now have the Founders Owl logo! Order them today at:
If you do not have your PE uniform, allowance of one week grace will be permitted at the start of school for orders. In that time, students may wear: 
  • Gray t-shirt with no logos or designs
  • Solid navy basketball shorts to the knee

PE uniforms must be washed regularly.

No additional colors, stripes, words, or designs on any PE clothing. Brand names must be smaller than a business card. ex: "Nike" should not be longer than 3.5" nor taller than 2".

The first and third* Friday of each month is designated as Spirit Day. Additional spirit days will be communicated through email.
  • Students may wear blue jeans without holes, without slits, and must be free of decorations or embellishments. 
  • Students may wear any approved spirit-wear t-shirts, including shirts approved for extra-curricular activities or uniform shirts. 
  • If students are not wearing spirit wear, they must be in school uniform. 
    House shirts are no longer permitted on Spirit Day.
Spirit Wear may be purchased from booster clubs or our PTO.
