Dress Code


The context for our dress code stems from our mission and philosophy of education. Regis Jesuit High School seeks to maintain an atmosphere that is conducive to the highest quality of learning and animates the mission of our school. In an effort to maintain structures for students that will help their growth in maturity, personal responsibility and self-discipline, Regis Jesuit institutes a Dress Code policy. The Dress Code aims to limit distractions from learning and engagement in our community, invites equity between students in the ways they present themselves and provides students with clear expectations about forms of dress. The school believes that appropriate dress and appearance reflect good motivation, sensitivity to others and respect for oneself and for the school community. 

It is the responsibility of students, parents/guardians and staff to implement this code. Changes to dress code expectations can be made at any time to meet the needs of the community. Students out of dress code may be kept out of class resulting in an unexcused absence or tardy. Regis Jesuit High School reserves the right to send any student out of dress code home. When on campus, students must be dressed within the dress code guidelines, including before and after co-curricular practices and during school-sponsored events. Students may be sent home if they are wearing inappropriate attire at co-curricular events. In all cases, the Dean of Students has the final say regarding whether a garment is in dress code or not.
