Student Dress Code Guidelines

BOYS

We have made our dress code consistent and complementary to our educational goals. We trust that it best serves the image of Malden Catholic and our students. It is our belief that an important part of the educational experience requires a student’s attention to her personal appearance. We also maintain that our students should understand the meaning of situation-appropriate attire. Therefore, neatness and cleanliness are the prevailing considerations.

Students are required to be in dress code during the entire school day, and when they are conducting official school business.

PANTS: Chino, “Docker-type” pants or dress corduroy only. Pants must be of grey, navy, or khaki in color, free of designs or embroidery work. No jean styles, cargo or painters’ pants; no cut or altered pants. Pants with drawstring waist or banded/elastic cuffs are not allowed.
