Why Uniforms?

50s UniformsTo wear or not to wear?  Of course at Holy Trinity, there is no debate.  Uniforms are the best and only option.  Uniforms at Holy Trinity have been a long standing tradition since 1957.  Even though the style of uniforms has changed through the decades, the reasons for wearing a uniform have remained the same.

First of all, the wearing of uniforms bonds our students and promotes a sense of school spirit.  Other benefits include:

  • Students are more focused on learning.
  • There is more of an even playing field with a decrease on peer pressure to wear the trendier brands.
  • Allows for easier mornings on kids and parents.
  • For parents, it is simple economics.  Uniforms cost less than an entire new wardrobe.  Uniforms can be reused and recycled.

  1. I LOVE uniforms but think it isn’t asking too much to let the upper school introduce a new color besides navy and white. It’s 2014. Maybe use it as a special benefit for seniors only or something similar. Have them all vote.

    1. Thank you for your feedback Celeste! We’re happy to hear that you love uniforms as much as we do! We agree a little variety is important too, which is why we offer students many opportunities to dress out of uniform. Also, Upper School students get special days to wear their class t-shirts and Seniors are offered additional senior-only dress down days too.
