Uniforms and Dress Code

Your Subtitle Goes Here

The uniforms are a part of building the school culture and expectation for readiness to learn.

St. Malachy students wear uniforms and uphold a dress code to mark themselves as academy learners and as members of a community.  We seek to create a learning environment in which students are free to express themselves as individuals through relationships and interactive expression, outside of physical appearance and without relying on material possessions, creating an even playing field, so that all students feel included and supported.
