Uniform and Dress Code

Why Our Students Wear Uniforms

Uniforms help provide St. Charles School identity. They also instill a sense of pride and confidence in our students and reduce competition regarding clothing, current fads, and expensive name brands.

Uniforms should be neat, clean, and in good condition. Uniforms are available at Donald’s Uniform or at Lands’ End. If uniform clothing can be found at another store and is exact in color and appearance, it may be substituted.
