Livingston Classical Academy students are expected to dress in a way that aligns with our philosophy of maintaining a learning environment that focuses on the development of each student’s academic potential, personal character, and leadership skills.  Students and parents are asked to commit to this idea as well.

All Livingston Classical Academy students are required to be in school uniform during school hours and during all school activities and events unless otherwise specified. Attire which attracts undue or negative attention or which infringes on the rights or values of others is not considered to be in the spirit of the dress code. Attire is expected to be clean, in good condition, and properly sized to fit. Please account for your child’s growth throughout the year when purchasing items such as skirts and pants to ensure they remain at the appropriate length.

Each student shall be provided five school LOGO patches, which should be attached to each uniform top, in order to maintain visibility at all times.   The outermost layer of your child’s uniform will also be expected to have the school logo attached for display. This includes shirts, jumpers, blazers, and cardigans/sweaters.  All students will receive 5 free patches; these can be picked up at the school office during regular business hours.  Additional patches will be available for purchase after school begins.  For those who would like help with the patches, JJJinkleheimers in Howell will sew them on your child’s shirts for only $3.50 each.  You can reach them directly at 517-546-4345.     

Please remember to clearly label your child’s uniform items with his or her name. All uniform items look alike in the lost and found and items have a much better chance of being recovered if staff can identify the child to whom they belong.

Any medical or religious concerns or limitations that might preclude meeting the uniform guidelines should be addressed with the school’s principal to determine if reasonable accommodations are necessary.

The uniform guidelines at Livingston Classical Academy are not meant to be financially prohibitive for any student’s ability to attend our school. Families that qualify for the free lunch program may also request assistance with certain uniform requirements. Assistance will be handled confidentially by contacting School Administration at sholderman@livingstonclassical.org.

Any questions regarding the uniform dress code and standards should be sent to sholderman@ livingstonclassical.org
