Dress Code

Asheville Catholic School believes that performance in school is improved by setting and enforcing standards of dress that reflect pride in one’s self and in our school.  Therefore, Asheville Catholic School has instituted a school uniform policy that requires students to wear the approved uniform.  It is important that parents and students take responsibility for following the approved guidelines. The uniform is considered proper attire for all school activities including the Eucharistic Celebration.

Neatness in dress is always the norm at Asheville Catholic School.  This includes “free dress” days.  Please guide your son/daughter in selecting the appropriate sizes for school clothing when purchasing their clothing.  Modesty should be the norm when choosing attire to wear to all school functions.  Therefore, short shorts, halter-tops, spaghetti straps, shirts that are too short (bare midriffs), low cut blouses, clothing that is extremely tight, and clothing with inappropriate messages are not permitted.  Skirt and short lengths should be no more than two inches above the knee.  Your cooperation is appreciated in nurturing this awareness in your child.  We reserve the right to refuse entrance to class or school functions for any student not dressed in an appropriate manner.

Free dress and Spirite Days also fall under the above dress code. (get your spirit wear order form here)
