Dress Code


IRON ACADEMY DRESS CODE (adopted July 2018)


Iron Academy has students wear uniforms because of the benefits of neatness, unity, identity, and camaraderie. Uniform requirements will vary based on the type of activity (academic, PE, special events) in which the student is engaged and whether the student is in middle school (6th to 8th) or high school (9th to 12th).

All clothing is expected to be in good condition with no noticeable tears or stains and be relatively wrinkle-free.

Please mark all clothing with your son’s name so it can be returned to him from our lost and found pile. Any lost clothing that is unclaimed at the end of the school year will become property of Iron Academy.

Academic clothing to be worn daily:

On Mondays to Thursdays, dress requirements are:
