Dress Code

Students are expected to be well-groomed and neatly dressed in accordance with good taste.

Mandatory school attire consists of:

  • Navy blue blazer (blazers must be worn at all times. As weather permits, the Dean will decide the necessity for blazers. Generally, jackets are required from mid-October to mid-April. Students’ names must be marked clearly in all blazers)
  • Khaki trousers (Dockers or similar slacks)
  • Belt
  • White, light blue, or light yellow solid-colored shirt, always neatly tucked into the pants
  • Tasteful necktie
  • Socks
  • Brown or black hard-soled dress shoes only, including bucks, loafers, dress tie shoes

Hair is to be kept combed, neat, clean, and at a length and style judged appropriate by the Dean of Students. Faces are to be clean shaven. Students are not to wear: boots (including Timberland boots), canvas or cloth tennis shoes, moccasins, athletic sweatshirts, hooded sweatshirts, apparel associated with a college or professional sports franchise, head phones, earrings, tattoos, hats, or other accessories to the dress code; nor extreme haircut styles.

Free Dress Days

Prep offers Free Dress Days on many Fridays to show school spirit, to support a charity or to simply relax for a day. These days come at the discretion of the Dean of Students Office.
