The goal of Providence Classical School’s dress code is that students present themselves in a clean and neat manner as a representation of our school. While we recognize the uniqueness of each student and seek to develop individuality, it is also important for each student to understand the concept of appropriate dress for particular situations. With a consistent uniform policy, we hope to place the emphasis on academics and the formation of Christ-like character.
All uniforms should be chosen from the items on the PCS school page on the French Toast website.
Hair and Accessories:
Boys’ hair should be neat, conservative in style, above the collar and ear, and above the eyebrows. Boys may not have earrings, facial jewelry, tattoos, or facial hair.
For girls, make-up, nail polish, jewelry, and hair accessories should be non-distracting and appropriate for a school setting (no facial jewelry). All hair accessories must be in school colors. Hair should be neat, off the face, and not be dyed unnatural colors.
Polos may be burgundy, navy, light heather gray, or white and may be short or long-sleeved. White long-sleeved oxford shirts may also be worn and must be tucked in and worn with a dark belt. Uniform pants or shorts must be khaki or navy. Short length must be no higher than 4 inches above the knee. Gray dress pants may also be worn on regular school days. Boys may wear solid black, white, tan, gray, or navy socks.

Outer Wear and Shoes:
PCS sweatshirts, hoodies, or zippered jackets may be worn over uniforms and are the only outer wear that may be worn inside the building for students. Hoods may not be worn over the head inside the building. Navy or burgundy cardigans from our school page on French Toast may also be worn.

Boots may only be worn with scooters or pants, and pants should not be tucked in if boots are worn.
Students in sixth grade and higher have the opportunity to change clothes for PE class each week. This year students have three options:
1. Remain in school uniform clothes
2. Wear athletic pants/joggers (e.g. adidas pants; No leggings or tight fitting pants) and a PCS t-shirt
3. Wear the PCS PE shorts (these are the only shorts students may wear) and a PCS t-shirt.
