Remember…

It is YOUR responsibility to know and understand the uniform policy before finalizing purchases.

  • All uniforms must appear to be the same as those pictured and described on our school website.
  • Many vendors now have uniform options, but they change styles frequently and may NOT be acceptable at Monticello Academy.  (Examples: Kohl’s, Target, Gap, Old Navy, Children’s Place, Gymboree)
  • Please ask for clarifications from the school office staff or uniform committee (Aleece Winters, alntel@msn.com).

Exemptions

The uniform policy is one example of Monticello Academy’s high standards of excellence in conduct, safety, and student achievement. Uniforms are mandatory for all students. Exemptions may be allowed in extenuating circumstances, such as students with physical disabilities, to accommodate religious beliefs, or other special needs. Financial assistance for obtaining uniforms may also be available for low income families. Decisions regarding exemptions and financial assistance are made by the CEO.

When Uniforms are Required

Uniforms must be worn while on campus during school hours and on field trips, except under special circumstances or as announced by a school administrator. Uniforms must be worn for all school programs that are scheduled immediately before and after school, as well as all tutoring and enrichment sessions, except on occasions when costumes or specialized clothing may be required. Uniforms are not required for any evening or weekend activities unless specified. 

Uniform Policy Changes

From time to time, changes to the uniform dress code may be approved by the CEO or the Board of Trustees. If certain changes are more restrictive than in the previous policy, the Board of Trustees may authorize a grace period for compliance so that the changes are not a hardship for MA families.
