Collegiate believes that uniform dress promotes respect for the importance of education, builds a sense of school pride and community, and encourages students to appreciate the talents of others as distinguished from their style of dress. The dress code is designed to be comfortable and affordable.
No hats, scarves, bandannas, cargo pants, denim clothing, or legwarmers are to be worn in the classroom. Hair and jewelry must be appropriate for the academic environment, as discerned by the division head and/or dean of students. Collegiate students may not wear any clothing that is torn or excessively worn.

Every Collegiate parent is a member of the Parents Association (PA)! The organization seeks to promote open communication between the administration, teachers and parents and assist the school in fulfilling its mission. The PA meets regularly throughout the school year.
The PA organizes a number of activities throughout the year and relies on parents to volunteer their time and talents (often in the form of baking skills). You are the key to the success of these events. Please consider getting involved and asking your fellow parent friends to volunteer. Watch for opportunities to sign-up this fall!
