9th - 12th Grade Dress Code

The purpose of the dress code is to clearly identify appropriate attire for 9th - 12th grade students on school days. In keeping with our school mission, the Board and administration of the school believe attire should be modest, not offensive to others and not disruptive to the learning environment while on school property or out at a Bradford Prep event or field trip. We believe it is important for all of our students to learn the importance of presenting themselves well and that they should begin learning those habits while at school.  Students must exert a certain amount of judgment in their choice of clothing to wear to a school event.


Attire Requirements:

  • Shorts must have a minimum of a 5" inseam
  • Skirts/dresses must be at minimum finger tip in length when shoulders are resting
  • Shirts may not have pictures, phrases or slogans on them.  Brand logos, college names or team names are acceptable.
  • No sleeveless, strapless or halter shirts or tanks
  • Leggings or yoga pants may be worn with a shirt of an appropriate length (covers hips)
  • Clothing must cover undergarments at all times
  • No pajama pants
  • No jeans or pants with holes above the knee
  • No attire with a slogan or symbol that disrupts the educational process. No clothing that displays any suggestive or objectionable material including anything advocating drug, tobacco or alcohol use.  No inappropriate language or suggestive pictures on clothing and no pants with writing across the backside.
  • No hats, beanies, toboggans, bandanas, or headbands with items that protrude from head (unless for religious reasons, and with admin permission)
  • No clothing that exposes bare midriffs or backs, or plunging necklines. No mesh shirts or sheer/ see-through clothing.
  • No clothing that defames, degrades or is offensive to a gender, race, color, religious group, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, age, a physical or mental impairment or culture.
  • No pants worn that are excessively sagging
  • No facial piercings (beyond earrings and nose studs)


This list is not all-inclusive and is subject to change at the Administration’s discretion.  Failure to comply with the School’s uniform policy and/or dress code are violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
