Student Handbook

 The Student Handbook is divided into three sections: Mission, Philosophy, and Goals; Campus Life; and Academic Life. Each section contains important guidelines for positive involvement and overall success at the Academy. Thank you.

ACADEMY DRESS CODE

An essential part of the Academy’s mission is to teach and foster mutual respect. We view mutual respect as a central value. It is embedded in the school’s culture, we strive to model it daily, and we view it as the foundation of civilized society.

Respect is woven into the fabric of our community at the Academy, and it guides us in many ways. Respect for tradition, respect for ourselves, and respect for others all influence the language we use, the ways in which we behave with and toward each other, and the way we look and dress.

We believe that the way a person acts is related to the way a person dresses. As a result, we impose a stricter standard of dress upon our students than they might upon themselves—from 8:00 in the morning until 3:30 in the afternoon—to underline our seriousness of shared purpose here and to foster the feeling of belonging to a larger community.

If there is doubt about attire, one should err on the conservative side. If doubt persists, the Class Dean or Dean of Students will make a judgment. That judgment will be final. In those cases where there is clear or continued violation of our dress standards, penalties may range from being sent back to the dormitory to change, to detention or suspension.
