Dress Code

San Jose Charter Academy

STUDENT UNIFORM / DRESS CODE POLICY

Knowing that a safe and orderly environment is the mark of an effectively achieving school, SJCA has formulated the following uniform and dress code policies in regards to what is acceptable and what is unacceptable in the manner of dress and personal appearance. If you should need assistance with obtaining uniform items, please contact our school office.

 

DRESS CODE RESEARCH:

According to research a school dress code:

  • positively affects student academic performance and their interaction with other students
  • positively affects classroom discipline and decreases disruptions
  • improves school climate by decreasing the negative effects of peer pressure and
  • increases school spirit and pride!
  • decreases costs – purchasing school uniforms has proven to be less than what is usually spent for children’s school clothing.
