A strong correlation exists between student appearance
and the perception of excellence.
Pineapple Cove Classical Academy students are required to dress and groom themselves in a way that aligns with our philosophy of maintaining a learning environment that focuses on the development of each student’s academic potential, personal character and leadership skills.
Our uniform policy and dress code foster an atmosphere in which the PCCA virtues can thrive: Courage, Courtesy, Honesty, Perseverance, Self-Government, and Service. Daily reinforcement of strong personal habits promotes courtesy; the honor of self and others; modesty and discipline. Adherence to the code diminishes economic and social barriers between students; increases a sense of belonging and school pride; encourages good judgment; models good citizenship and encourages all to perform at their highest level.
All Pineapple Cove Classical Academy students are expected to be in school uniform during school hours and during all school activities and events unless otherwise specified. Attire which attracts undue or negative attention or which infringes on the rights or values of others is not considered to be in the spirit of the dress code not only for students, but also for staff and parents visiting the campus. Attire is expected to be clean, in good condition, business-like, and properly sized to fit. The Pineapple Cove Classical Academy school logo will be visible at all times.
Students, staff and parents are to commit to the code and remain dedicated to interacting with one another as ladies and gentlemen. In doing so, we are choosing to be actively engaged in the safe and secure, nurturing environment of this exceptional learning community.
Any medical or religious concerns or limitations that might preclude meeting the uniform guidelines should be addressed with the School Principal to determine if reasonable accommodations are necessary.
