School Uniforms

All students in grades K-8 are required to wear uniforms.

Reasonable care and neatness with regard to cleanliness, dress, and appearance are required at all times. If a student is out of uniform for any valid reason, a note of explanation must be sent to the homeroom teacher.

Girls’ Uniform

  • Grades K-4 may wear a tunic style jumper, a V-neck pleated jumper, or a skort in the LCA uniform plaid. Long or short-sleeved white blouses, polos, or white turtlenecks with no ornamentation are mandatory with a jumper or skort.
  • Grades 5 – 8 may wear a pleated skirt, a kilt, or a skort in the LCA uniform plaid. Skirts must come down at least as far as the top of the knees.
    • Long or short-sleeved banded polos in white, burgundy, and navy will be the ONLY uniform shirt worn with a skirt for girls in grades 5 – 8. A t-shirt worn under the polo shirt must be solid white, short sleeved, with no logo visible. T-shirts must be tucked in so as not to hang below the shirt. A white, navy, or burgundy turtleneck may be worn under long-sleeved polos only.
  • All grade levels may wear navy or khaki pants* with a white, burgundy, or navy long or short-sleeved polo shirt. Denim pants or cargo pants may not be worn. If a polo shirt is worn that does not have a banded bottom, it must be tucked in and a belt must be worn (if the pants have belt loops). A white, navy, or burgundy turtleneck may be worn under long-sleeved polos only.
  • Navy or khaki walking shorts will be permitted in August, September, May, and June. Cargo shorts or shorts with any type of ornamentation may not be worn. If a polo shirt that does not have a banded bottom is worn with the shorts, it must be tucked in and a belt must be worn (if the shorts have belt loops).
  • LCA crewneck sweatshirts and quarter zips may be worn over the uniform shirt during the school day. Permissible sweatshirts and quarter zips are those purchased through the online LCA spirit shop, Schoolbelles or Lands’ End, as well as those quarter zips issued to student ambassadors. All other sweatshirts and quarter zips, including hooded sweatshirts, fleece jackets or attire issued through LCA athletics are not permitted during the school day. Girls may also wear solid colored cardigans, pullover sweaters, or sleeveless pullover vests in navy, burgundy, or white. These are not a required part of the uniform.
  • Girls must wear plain crew socks with fold-over cuffs or knee socks. Socks may be white, navy, burgundy, black or brown. White, navy, burgundy, or black tights/leggings may be worn in cooler weather. If leggings are worn, socks must be high enough to cover the bottom of the leggings. Low-rise socks or peds are not permitted. Socks must cover the ankle. LCA spirit wear socks are also acceptable.
  • Students may wear dress or tennis shoes that are black, white, gray, brown, blue or maroon/burgundy. Any accents/highlights must also be black, white, gray, brown, blue or maroon/burgundy. Shoes that light up or contain a wheel, as well as open-toed and backless shoes (clogs, Crocs, slippers, etc.) are prohibited, along with bright, neon, camouflage, or glittery shoes. In addition, high top tennis shoes are also prohibited. Shoes are to have non-marking soles. Students who choose to wear tennis shoes with their school uniform may wear the same shoes for PE. Students who choose to wear dress shoes will need a separate pair of shoes for PE.
  • No visible tattoos, piercings, jewelry, or other accessories are permitted with the following exceptions:
    • One pair of small post/hoop earrings on the ear lobe only; no dangling earrings
    • One small Catholic religious symbol on a thin gold/silver chain
    • One watch/bracelet
    • One ring worn on ring finger
  • No makeup or nail polish may be worn in school. Students with makeup or nail polish on will be sent to the Main Office to remove it.

*Schoolbelles refers to their flat-front pants and shorts as “mid-rise.” These may be worn, but no other “mid-rise” pants are acceptable.
