Why do you have Uniforms?

Your clothing and appearance are an expression of your personality, but they also reflect your inner self and influence the way you and others act.

- For the Strength of Youth

We believe that properly wearing the uniform displays unity, modesty, neatness, and dignity. It demonstrates respect for self, education, teachers and fellow students. Wearing the uniform helps us focus on learning and service, rather than on clothing and accessories and reminds students of their commitment to live by the White House Academy Honor Code.
