To encourage high standards of modesty, decorum and excellence, and to cultivate a positive and encouraging learning culture.
In the Lower School, the dress code is viewed as an opportunity to slowly expose students to choices. As they progress through Trinity (from TK-12), student freedoms increase in the area of uniform/dress code. Learning to make wise choices is one of the goals of Trinity’s uniform/dress code.
The middle school dress code is less conservative than the lower school uniform yet requires standards more stringent than that of the high school dress code. The intent is to teach appropriate behaviors through attire while acknowledging what is developmentally appropriate for the age group as an identity separate from the high school.
The highest level of freedom in dress code is experienced at this level. Students are encouraged to “dress for success” and “dress to impress” as they develop their independence and prepare for the greater freedom in the college experience.
