Uniform & Dress Code

Please read and follow the guidelines for the appropriate area: K-4, 5-8, Physical Education

Purpose of the Uniform
The students at Corpus Christi Catholic School wear a uniform to foster the uniformity in
appearance and to promote that learning is a daily focus, not a competition in fashion. The

    appearance.

  • Students feel good about themselves when they arrive at school well-groomed, clean and

    happenings, rather than on concern for how they look and feel due to lack of good
    personal hygiene or grooming habits.
