Uniform Dress Code

Carmel Catholic students are expected to be in full dress code during the entire school day. Students demonstrate the values of Community, Reverence, and Enthusiasm when complying with the Carmel Catholic High School Uniform Dress Code:

  • Our uniform is a living symbol of our unity in this Carmel Catholic Community, therefore it is important that we wear it with intention and care.

  • Reverence for our own personal dignity motivates us to present ourselves in the best possible way. The way we wear our uniform reflects this dignity.

  • Embracing the Carmel Catholic uniform as an opportunity to demonstrate pride in your school and community makes the value of Enthusiasm come to life.
