Student Dress Code
The interpretation of the code is left to the immediate discretion of the faculty and administation. If a student is out of dress code, parents will need to bring a change of clothing.
- Shorts (on designated days only), skirts, and pants must be worn at the waist. Pants and shorts should fit without hanging loosely or forming tightly to the body. Shorts and skirts may not be shorter than 3" (three inches) above the top of the knee cap. Pants with writing on them (down leg, across the back, etc.) or holes are not permitted.
- Shirts and blouses cannot be form fitting and must be either tucked into the waistband or at least 4" (four inches) below the waistband to avoid exposing the stomach. A solid color polo shirt (must be pull-over with a collar and buttons) or a HCA shirt must be worn. A solid color sweater, hoodie, or sweatshirt can be worn over the polo or HCA shirt. Jackets may be worn for warmth in colder weather. They may be solid color or have non-offensive patterns. HCA sweatshirts or hoodies can also be worn without a polo or HCA shirt underneath, but must remain on throughout the school day.
