Students attending Cardinal Gibbons High School are expected to be appropriately dressed to learn. A student’s attire should reflect the Christian values of modesty* and respect for the individual person and the school community at all times both on campus and at all school-sponsored activities and events.
Questions about this policy or the appropriateness of an item of clothing should be directed to the Deans of Students.
We partner with Land’s End to offer uniform options for our families. Uniforms can also be purchased from other stores provided they are similar in style to the Land’s End options.
Dress Code Violations
Students who violate the dress code may be subject to disciplinary action. Cardinal Gibbons determines the appropriateness of clothing worn on campus and may ask a student or guest to change or leave campus.
Students must arrive dressed for school and should be in dress code during their Flex Period.
Students will be made aware of any dress code violations via a message from the Dean of Students at the end of the day. Most infractions are easily addressed and will not require a student to leave campus to change. Students out of the dress code may be given appropriate attire to borrow for the remainder of the day.
The goal is for students to be present for learning and not miss instructional time. Please contact the Deans of Students with questions about this process. Our attendance office can provide the specific dress code infraction if a parent requests it.
- 1st violation: notification at the end of the school day
- 2nd violation: notification at the end of the school day
- 3rd violation: notification at the end of the school day and email to parents
- 4th violation: notification at the end of the school day and after school detention
Any further violations will require a meeting with the Dean of Students and may lead to further disciplinary action.
