Uniforms

LandsEndStudents and staff at Bay City Academy wear uniforms daily. We have chosen uniforms because they:

  • Allow student and adult focus to be on learning
  • Help eliminate student or staff judging each other because of brand names, etc Improve the safety and security of the school
  • Improve behavior and discipline in the school
  • Help develop a sense of unity
  • Ensure that inappropriate clothing will not be worn to school

The students and staff purchase their uniforms from Lands' End. White turtle necks and white dress shirts may be purchased anywhere, but should be a plain fabric, button-down shirt, not see-through or lace, and display no logos. Socks or tights should be solid white, solid khaki, or solid forest green.

Accessories/Hair

Please keep in mind the intent of the uniform policy is for the students and staff to have a simple, professional and unified appearance – both in clothing and personal appearance, including hairstyles/hair color/jewelry/nail care, make-up and general grooming. The focus at BCA is on learning; our ultimate guide for clothing/appearance is to be sure it does not distract from learning. We are preparing students for professional careers, and a professional appearance is important.

  • Excessive/extreme jewelry, such as chains or spikes, is not allowed. No visible body piercing, other than earrings allowed Extreme/excessive make-up is not allowed
  • Visible tattoos are not allowed
  • We do not have hair length requirements, but it is important that students are able to make eye contact, as would be expected in the business world, so hair must not cover the eyes
  • Pants need to be worn at the waist and not excessively baggy Only naturally occurring hair colors are permissible
  • Plain brown or black belts are acceptable

Extra-Curricular Functions

It is expected that students at school after hours, or at school activities or events, will be dressed appropriately for the occasion.

  • Shorts or skirts must not be more than 2 inches above the knee
  • Students should not bare their midriff
  • Writing/slogans on clothing must be appropriate for a school setting
  • Excessive/extreme jewelry, such as chains or spikes, is not allowed. No visible body piercing, other than earrings, are allowed Extreme/excessive make-up is not allowed
  • Visible tattoos are not allowed

With ever-changing trends in fashion, the school reserves the right to make such changes to the dress code as may be necessary. Should changes occur, they will be clearly communicated to parents and students.
