Uniforms, Spirit Wear, Formal Dress & Free Dress Day
Eagle Ridge Academy maintains an official standard of dress, complete with a school uniform that must be worn every day. The Academy has a primary objective of developing a school dedicated to the highest standards of academics and deportment. The uniform policy and dress code underscores the Academy’s seriousness of purpose by encouraging students to think of their attire as an aspect of their work;helps to eliminate self-consciousness and social competition; places the emphasis for school culture on scholarship; and fosters a sense of identity with the Academy. We ask not only for the student’s commitment to this concept but for the parent’s as well. Formal uniforms are required for school-sponsored activities, such as field trips, school pictures, and concerts.
Uniform Changes for 2018-19
Two uniform changes will be added for the 2018-19 school year. For all grades, headwear/hair accessories must be black, gray, white or burgundy (headbands may also be the school uniform plaid). Examples are: headbands, ponytail holders, hijabs, barrettes, etc. (Note: Hats and caps may not be worn during the school day as they are not considered part of the school uniform.) For the Schools of Logic and Rhetoric, solid black or gray long skirts have been added to the uniform. A custom gray skirt is available through Educational Outfitters.
