Student Uniform Information
The student dress code is symbolic of the importance we place on education. Students must wear their full uniform to and from school. According to the 2018-2019 Academy Student Handbook, the student uniform is:
- Khaki pants, appropriate length and hemmed (not "cargo")
- Dark Socks
- Black, polished dress shoes, either loafers or tie-up*
- Black athletic shoes (brightly colored logos or soles are unacceptable)**
- Black leather belt
- Oxford light blue dress shirt with no logo (denim, royal blue, or dark blue are not acceptable)
- Solid burgundy tie (not clip-on) or 8th grade leadership tie
- Saint Ignatius gym uniform (purchased through school)
*A solid black leather dress shoe is required for all students. Black dress shoes that hold polish are appropriate. No boots, sneakers, hiking, or athletic footwear of any kind are to be worn in place of dress shoes, nor shoes with writing or conspicuous logos or brand names on them.
**Students are required to wear an athletic shoe for PE and athletics. In inclement weather only, students may wear boots to school, but they must change into school shoes immediately upon their arrival.
If you are unsure about a uniform question, please check with Mr. James Scott or Mrs. Teresa Scott prior to purchasing.
The Academy program promotes the health and wellness of our students. The Academy participates in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Free and Reduced Meal Programs. We serve two meals per day, breakfast and lunch, and on 5 PM dismissal days students also receive a snack. All students receive meals at no cost to families. The Academy meal program is offered by Revolution Foods who provide healthy, fresh, whole food made from natural ingredients served in right-sized portions. Revolution Food meals do not contain artificial coloring, flavors or preservatives. Fresh fruit is available at every meal.
Students are prohibited from bringing the following to school:
- Fast food
- Candy, gum
- Soda and other caffeinated or sugary drinks
- Lunchables (or similar brands)
- Cup of Noodles (or similar brands)

Physical Education and Athletics
Physical exercise is essential to good health. All students participate in the physical education and athletic program at the Academy, whether on an interscholastic team or in intramural activities. Students are expected to consistently behave in a sportsmanlike manner and should bring their athletic clothes every day.
The Academy does not provide transportation to and from school. Parents are responsible for making arrangements to have students at school by 7:25 a.m. and picked up at the end of the school day by 5:00 p.m. Students who take public transportation can get a reduced fare eligible card from the school secretary.
