Dress Code

Uniform Policy

New Life Academy of Excellence feels it is important for children to develop an understanding of appropriate dress and appearance to suit the occasion. The manner in which students wear their uniforms reflects pride in their school. To this end, students are required to wear the uniform and be neatly groomed.

New Life Academy of Excellence feels that a safe and disciplined learning environment is the first requirement of a good school. Young people who are safe and secure, who learn basic life values and essentials of good citizenship, are better students. Many parents, teachers and school officials have come to see school uniforms as one positive and creative way to reduce discipline problems and increase focused learning. The responsibility of having correct uniform is the responsibility of the parent. In the event that a child is in violation of the uniform code, a notification will be sent home. NLAE expects the parent to address the uniform violation promptly.

Dress Code

The goal of the uniform policy is consistency. Therefore, all uniform items other than shoes and accessories can be purchased directly from our vendors.
