Student Life

Dress Code

Salpointe Catholic High School maintains the right to establish a dress code for students. The student dress code is important to promote a conducive learning environment. Students are expected to dress appropriately while on campus and during all school-sponsored activities. The parameters for appropriate dress and grooming are set forth below. Parents/guardians are expected to offer the first and best counsel to their student in this matter. The Deans are the interpreters of proper attire.

Dress code polos, outwear and P.E. uniforms are available through the Salpointe Spirit Store. 

List of 9 items.

  • Shirts

    All students are required to wear collared polo style short or long-sleeved shirts with a Salpointe logo.  These shirts may be purchased through the Salpointe Spirit Store.  Approved Salpointe team and club polo shirts are also acceptable.  All shirts must be large enough in cut to cover from the neck to below the waistband whether the student is sitting, standing, or walking through the halls with a backpack. T-shirts or other types of shirts may not be worn over the dress code polo shirt.
