WCA Middle School Dress Code Policy

Our commitment

At WCA, we strive to make academics the primary focus of our students by limiting distractions as much as possible.  It is our goal that all WCA students maintain their person and clothing in a modest, clean, and orderly manner consistent with the school uniform dress code.

Please make sure your student dresses in alignment with our Dress Code Policy.  It is our goal to be diligent in supporting the school policy, particularly with the length of shorts, skorts, skirts, and dresses.  All shorts, skorts, skirts, and dresses must not be shorter than a credit card length above the knee.  

Thank you for your support as we strive to ensure that all students are dressed for academic success.
