WEARING OF UNIFORM
The American Academy uniform will be worn properly and with pride at all times, both on campus and off. Except for designated "No-Uniform Days," the school uniform is compulsory. The AAC uniform consists of the following pieces for students in grades 6 - 12:·
Polo-style collared shirt (maroon or navy blue, long and short sleeve)
- Khaki slacks
- Khaki shorts
- Sports uniform (navy and white shorts and regulation shirt)
- Navy blue pullover v-neck sweater
- Navy blue button up sweater.
To ensure consistency, all uniform items must be purchased through the school provider, O'marques. In the event that inventory is depleted, or a special size is needed, students must order appropriate pieces and obtain a receipt to show the uniform is being made. This receipt will allow a student to be admitted to class during the approximately 7 to 10 school days that it takes to manufacture the uniform.
AA students are expected to be appropriately groomed and dressed throughout the school day. The school expects students to be neat, clean, and modest in their appearance and to present a good image of the school within the community. If in the opinion of the faculty and/or administration, a student's appearance detracts from the decorum of the school, the student will be asked to change and disciplinary action may be taken.
AA will plan several "No-Uniform Days" throughout the year. All layers of clothing must meet all dress code requirements for non-uniform days. Following is the dress code for such days.
