Dress Code

Christian ideals suggest that modesty, neatness, and refinement should characterize the dress and appearance of students attending Toledo Junior Academy.

National surveys have shown significant benefits of a dress code policy, including improvement in discipline, increased student safety, decreased peer pressure, increased student achievement, and improved attendance. Given these advantages, Toledo Junior Academy has adopted the following dress code policy.

  1. Uniforms are to be worn at all times, except on specified days.
  2. If make-up is worn it should result in a natural appearance.
  3. Hats are not to be worn in the school building.
  4. Jewelry is not to be worn during school days or school functions.

Dress Code Infractions

Students who dress out of code will take home a note to notify parents of each infraction. At the 3rd infraction, parents will be called to pick the child up from school to go change clothes. Subsequent infractions may be taken to the school board as a discipline issue.
