2022/2023 DRESS CODE

The purpose of a school uniform at St. Jude School is to promote a positive self-image as well as to prevent style competition and limit the cost of clothing. Rather than stifling individuality, the uniform encourages students 
to value an individual’s personal attributes instead of material possessions. Compliance with the uniform policy minimizes distractions in the classroom and fosters an atmosphere of serious scholarship. The uniform code is an important part of the image of St. Jude School and must be followed at all times when students are on campus. After school hours, students must remain in compliance with the uniform code unless required to change for a sport or other supervised activity.
