DeKalb Preparatory Academy

Uniform Policy


It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in a school organized event outside of normal school hours.

Uniform Policy

Our policy for school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • engenders a sense of community and belonging toward the school;
  • is practical and smart;
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • is regarded as suitable wear for school and is considered by parents/care givers as good value for money; and
  • is designed with health and safety in mind.

Uniforms are mandatory. Uniforms set the tone of a positive learning environment. Please be mindful that dress code violations will be enforced, as we want to protect our learning environment. The uniform policy is as follows:

Elementary Students

Red or white polo shirt with with black or khaki bottoms and black shoes.

Middle School Students

Red/White/Black polo shirts with black or khaki bottoms and black shoes.


Only black or white socks or stockings are permitted. Students must wear belts.
