General Guidelines for Uniforms

St. Philip School maintains a Uniform Policy for all Grades K-8.  We have found this policy helps students to better focus on academic and social learning throughout the school day, devoid of distractions and peer judgment of clothing worn to school.

Please refer to the St. Philip Handbook (found inside the school calendar with the green cover) for the complete policy.  Our school uniform provider, Educational Outfiters, also maintains an onsite list throughout the year detailing the acceptable uniform items for SPS.
