The Caprock Academy uniform and dress code policy requires students to wear a uniform and follow a conservative dress code. This policy serves to eliminate distraction and uphold the vision and mission of the school. Spirit wear are not part of the uniform but can be worn on Spirit Days. Students not in “code” may not attend class. Teachers are expected to enforce the dress code.


There are some exceptions to the dress code some of which include:

  1. Special event days, which have been pre-scheduled and approved by the Head of School.

  2. Students participating in Scouting programs who wish to wear the Scouting uniforms on meeting days.

  3. Uniforms for other groups will be allowed at the discretion of the Head of School.

For more detailed information on our Dress Code, please read the Family Handbook, beginning on page 38.
