Our uniform policy and dress code fosters an atmosphere in which the Ivywood virtues can thrive: courage, respect, excellence, integrity, humility, self-government, and wonder.
Daily reinforcement of strong personal habits promotes courtesy, the honor of self and others, modesty, and discipline. Adherence to the code diminishes economic and social barriers between students, increases a sense of belonging and school pride, encourages good judgment, models good citizenship, and encourages all to perform at their highest level.
Ivywood Classical Academy students are required to dress and groom themselves in a way that aligns with our philosophy of maintaining a learning environment that focuses on the development of each student’s academic potential, personal character and leadership skills.
All Ivywood Classical Academy students are required to be in school uniform during school hours and during all school activities and events unless otherwise specified by the Principal. Attire which attracts undue or negative attention or which infringes on the rights or values of others is not considered to be in the spirit of the dress code. Attire is expected to be clean, in good condition, and properly sized to fit. Please account for your child’s growth throughout the year when purchasing items such as skirts and pants to ensure they remain at the appropriate length.
Students, staff and parents are to commit to the code and remain dedicated to interacting with one another as ladies and gentlemen. In doing so, we are choosing to be actively engaged in the safe, secure, and nurturing environment of this exceptional learning community.
Any medical or religious concerns or limitations that might preclude meeting the uniform guidelines should be addressed with the School Principal to determine if reasonable accommodations are necessary. The uniform guidelines at Ivywood Classical Academy are not meant to be financially prohibitive for any student’s ability to attend our school.Families interested in applying for a uniform scholarship can request an application by emailing: [email protected].

If the student is unable to meet the dress code or refuses to make the necessary corrections, the Principal or her designee shall notify the student’s parent and request that the parent make the necessary correction(s). If both the student and parent refuse, the Principal may take disciplinary action.
