Dress Code

Ivy Academia is an entrepreneurial school with a professional dress code. If financial concerns preclude the purchase of dress code attire, please discuss with administration so that arrangements can be made to assist.


Each student is a representative of Ivy Academia in the eyes of the public. Each student is expected to report to school properly groomed and wearing appropriate clothing.  Students TK-8 wear formal attire on designated days throughout the month and when there are special events. Students who report to school inappropriately dressed will be asked to have acceptable attire brought to them or to change into attire in the office and will be subject to disciplinary action.


 Dress clothes may be found at many stores including Target, Wal-Mart, Sears, JCPenney, Children’s Place, Dennis, or various online retailers including Amazon. Clothing should be appropriate for young people without references to vulgarity or controlled substances.
