UNIFORM POLICY

Why Uniforms?

Legacy Academy students wear uniforms because a common uniform helps us build school culture and create a common school identity among our students. Uniforms also limit the focus on external definers, such as the brand of one's clothing, etc. Wearing uniforms reduces the student's focus on self and self-expression and encourages an environment in which internal character may be emphasized. Uniforms also simplify choices for parents and students!

Through the Legacy uniform policy, we aim for our uniforms to be as affordable as is possible, simple in understanding, and professional in presentation. 

Please closely note the Uniform Chart below and the updated handbook for 2019-2020 Uniform requirements. ​

Updates for 2019-2020:

  • Weekly Professional Attire for Logic & Rhetoric Level Students. For the last two years, Upper-Level students have dressed up once a month for "Professional Day". Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, these students will wear a defined common professional uniform one day a week. 

  • Legacy Academy now has an online store. Daily shirts (polos), sweaters, and athletic clothes must be purchased through the online store to ensure true uniformity. You will also be able to buy sports gear and other items here, as well.

  • Rhetoric level students will add a blazer to their Professional Day uniform with a Legacy Academy logo after a special event in the fall. 

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Students must keep their hair cut neatly and clean. Unnatural dyes are not permitted except when given specific permissions for school Spirit days.

  • Students are expected to have a clean and professional presentation. Their clothes should be washed and residue free every day of attendance. Uniforms should be relatively wrinkle-free and without holes or tears.
