Dress Code:
Updated for the 2022-2023 School Year

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.
