Truth First, Love Always

Student Dress Code

John Caboto Academy

In order to allow students to focus on the primary objective of learning and alleviate parental concerns, the school has adopted a colour-coordinated dress code. We request the parents’ cooperation and support in enforcing the school’s dress code to which we expect all students to conform daily.

Students are expected to wear the dress code to school events and out-of-school activities unless otherwise indicated.

School Dress Code

  • Solid white polo shirt (long or short sleeved)
  • Plain solid navy-blue cardigan or sweather
  • Previous years polo shirt with school crest
  • Athletic fabric is not permitted
  • No visible brand logos, or designs

  • Solid navy-blue skirt (knee length)
  • Solid navy-blue tunic, slacks, or capris
  • Solid navy-blue pants or shorts (knee length)
  • Athletic fabric is not permitted
  • No visible brand logos, or designs

  • Black and/or white running or casual shoes
  • Shoes must be low-heeled

Permitted on casual days:
  • Jeans without rips or tears

  • School appropriate writing or logos on clothing

The following items and accessories are prohibited (includes casual days):

  • Caps or hats in the building

Inherent in the dress code is the expectation that students will be clean and neat in their appearance. Students are expected to wear boots outside during the winter months and keep a pair of shoes in school to change into before entering classrooms (indoor boots are not permitted in class). Outer garments should reflect appropriate seasonal school wear.
