Stella Maris Academy Uniform Policy

The school uniform reflects the spirit of Stella Maris Academy by fostering an environment that supports the pursuit of academic excellence and the spiritual, moral, and social growth of the students. The school uniform serves to unify the student body, and is an outward expression of the mission of Stella Maris Academy.

Stella Maris Uniform Dress Code and Buying Guide

School uniforms are to be worn daily with exceptions determined by the school president or campus principal.

Uniforms are to be properly worn: tucked in, neat, clean and mended. Hats or caps may not be worn in the building. Hairstyles and jewelry must be simple and modest and hair must be a natural color. Jewelry can include earrings, necklaces, finger rings and bracelets. Extreme makeup, visible tattoos, or body piercings are not allowed. These expectations will be enforced on non-uniform days, as well as regular uniform days.

 Non-uniform days will be scheduled throughout the course of the year and posted on the school calendar. Students must demonstrate neatness, cleanliness, modesty, and pride in their appearance on non-uniform days. Examples of clothing that are not acceptable are:

  • Ripped or torn clothing
  • Shorts or skirts that are shorter than mid-thigh
  • Yoga pants or leggings without a skirt/skort/jumper
  • Hats

 Students who are not in compliance with the dress code will call home for the approved uniform.
