Uniform Guidelines

All girls in preschool through high school wear a Campbell plaid uniform. The girls are all required to have an official uniform (sweater, tunic/skirt, and blouse), which they wear for specific programs throughout the year. Students in each division have additional uniform options to choose from for regular school days (e.g. shorts, pants, sweatshirts, polo shirt, etc.). Students in the Program for Young Children are asked to wear tennis shoes with their uniform, while the rest of the school is asked to wear brown shoes. The uniform allows the girls to come to school each day with the focus on what they are learning and sharing with their classmates, rather than what they are wearing.
