Student Uniforms


Why do we require uniforms?

  • Gives Schaeffer Academy a distinct and visible identity in our community
  • Accords with biblical standards for modesty in dress
  • Eliminates clothes-related peer pressure and expense
  • Makes student dress easier to manage for parents, students and school staff
  • Research confirms that students who wear uniforms perform better in behavior and academics


What does the uniform look like?

  • For Lower School, the uniform includes an attractive school plaid for girls and navy blue twill for boys and girls, worn with light blue, navy blue or white shirts.
  • For Upper School, khakis can be worn in addition to the navy blue twill.
  • This is only a general description.  For specific uniform requirements, check the Parent-Student Handbook on RenWeb or this document.
