Hawk Dress Code

While students are expected to maintain a standard of good manners and courtesy in their behavior at OLH College Prep, they are also expected to maintain that same standard in their dress.  School uniforms are worn to unify and identify OLH College Prep students.  All uniforms should be of appropriate sizing so that the student may present a neat and modest appearance.

The only approved uniform provider is Land’s End School Uniforms. Parents will also be supporting the school as Land’s End will give back to the school a percentage of what is spent. Click on the image below for direct access: 
 
 
  • Our contracted uniform provider is Land’s End School Uniforms. All uniform items need to be purchased through this company. Please do not set up your student, or yourself, to be disappointed when they cannot wear items purchased from another brand.
  • Shirts and jackets purchased from Land’s End will come with the logo. Dress uniforms will come with the Our Lady of the Hills Crest. All other items will come with the OLH logo. Students may continue to wear official school uniform items previously purchased from Land’s End with the old logo as long as the items are still in good condition. Items purchased in previous years must still fit appropriately (i.e. skirts must be within 1 inch of the knee; shorts within 2 inches). Sweatshirts will no longer be allowed on regular school days.
  • Students are obliged to wear complete uniforms on all school days while on campus. Students found in violation of the dress code are subject to disciplinary action.  See the student handbook.
  • Uniform shirts may only have the top button unbuttoned. No undergarments that extend beyond the shirt sleeve or are visible at the neckline should be worn under the shirts. Only plain white or flesh-toned apparel may be worn under the white uniform shirt.
  • Only approved jackets and sweaters with the official OLH logo sold by Land’s End may be worn in the building. All other items must be removed and stored in lockers immediately upon entering the building. Non-approved items that are not removed and stored upon arrival will be stored in the office until a parent can arrange to pick up the item.

Shoes
The only shoes that are acceptable for school are plain white athletic shoes, plain brown or black leather dress shoes, plain brown boat shoes (i.e. Sperry's), or a plain brown or black cowboy boots worn under the uniform pants. Shoes must completely enclose the foot. High-top shoes may not be worn with school dress shorts or skirts. The judgment of an appropriate shoe is determined by the administration.
 
Face Masks
Face masks are currently optional.
 
Accessories
Jewelry is to be simple in style and should not be the distinguishing feature of a student’s appearance. Wrist bracelets are limited to two per arm. The wearing of hats/caps is not allowed on campus; however, on occasion when hats/caps are allowed, they must be worn in the traditional manner with the bill facing the front.
 
Socks
Socks must be worn and are to be plain white in any style. Socks must be easily visible unless long pants are worn. No other colors are acceptable.
 
Tattoos
Permanent or temporary tattoos including epidermal ink drawings are not allowed.
 
 

Special Occasions

Mass Days
On mass days, students should ensure all uniform items are clean and pressed. White uniform Oxford shirts must be worn these days.  Girls must wear the approved uniform skirt.  Boys must wear the approved uniform slacks.  All students are required and expected to attend the scheduled Masses as a part of their Christian Formation. Mass Days are not the time to schedule appointments, College days, etc. 
 
Spirit Day Dress

Cropped jeans, jean shorts, and denim-appearing spandex are not allowed. Jeans must be neat and hemmed. No jeans with tears, holes, rips or frays are permitted.
