Overview

Primacy’s School Uniform Policy has been developed to minimize distractions to academic achievement and improve our ability to create an orderly learning environment. There is solid evidence showing that there are fewer discipline problems, referrals, higher attendance rates, and an increase in academic achievement with the implementation of a uniform policy. Primacy’s goal is neither to dictate fashion nor limit individual freedom of expression. Our goal is to establish a school climate that focuses on motivating our students to develop wisdom, live healthfully, care for others and to know God.

  • Boys must wear black belts and plain black dress style shoes when wearing pants.
  • Girls must wear plain black dress style shoes with black socks, stockings, or knee high stockings when wearing pants or skirt.
  • TPCA hooded sweatshirts are the only permissible ‘hoodies’ allowed to be worn with the uniform.
  • Students are to wear the school jacket, hoodie or sweater if they are cold. Personal coats are allowed over these when students need more warmth after three Primacy layers are exhausted.

  • Khaki shorts that look worn, torn, or dirty are not allowed and cannot have writing or large logos.
