One of the many ways Brookfield Academy attempts to prepare students to live as “responsible, constructive free people” (in the words of the school’s mission statement) is by operating with a voluntary dress code, rather than a mandatory uniform policy. BA students are free to learn how to dress responsibly on a voluntary basis in the absence of mandates.
The School reserves the right to determine if a student is dressed or groomed appropriately. If a student is not dressed properly, he or she may be sent home or parents will be called to bring in suitable clothing. By establishing reasonable standards for responsible dress, the Academy makes it possible for students to express their individuality, while still exhibiting good taste and proper decorum in accordance with the societal virtues of modesty and propriety.
Students are expected at all times to express their adherence to the Academy ideals in their attire, grooming, and personal demeanor. All grooming should reflect a positive self-image and pride in personal appearance. It is impossible to make precise rules about every item of clothing, but we trust that students will reflect, in their dress, the formal, academic environment of the school. The dress code is detailed below.
