Dress Code

We do have a uniform policy at Laurel Academy.  We will again be using Carrusel for school uniforms.  You can visit the Carrusel store if you are unable to come to the school on this date.  There will be other uniform sale dates scheduled throughout the school year.

Listed below are uniform guidelines:


All students in grades K – 8 will be required to wear uniforms.  The school uniform colors will be the following:

  • Boys – blue or khaki pants or shorts; navy or white polo shirts, or Laurel shirt
  • Girls – blue or khaki pants, shorts*, skirts**, skorts, or jumpers; navy or white polo shirts, or Laurel shirt

*Shorts should be no shorter than middle of the thigh

**Skorts, skirts and jumpers should reach the knee

PE Uniforms will be required for students in grades 6, 7 and 8.  Students should wear blue athletic shorts and white cotton t-shirts during warmer months; blue sweat pants may be worn in cooler months.  Students must wear athletic, sneaker-type shoes for participation in PE.

School uniforms may also be purchased at various stores throughout the city, including Target, Walmart, K-Mart, JC Penney, Sears, and Old Navy.
