General Guidelines


Proper, acceptable clothing, neatness, and cleanliness are essential to creating and maintaining the desired school atmosphere. It is important that each student take individual responsibility for her appearance. The uniform also serves to promote self-respect and pride in being identifiable as an Ursuline student. Students are to be in the correct and appropriate school uniform from the time they arrive on campus until they leave at the end of the day. Exceptions are allowed only for school sponsored club and athletic activities.

All students must have an Ursuline NAVY sweater required for monthly school liturgies in the Fall/Spring.

Students should also have an Ursuline sweater in their class color to wear at winter Liturgy and special occasions.  The grade level colors are: 6-7-8th, brown; 9th burgundy; 10th navy; 11th yellow; 12th green.
