Harding Fine Arts Academy requires students wear approved uniform attire. Students have the right to choose their own grooming styles subject to the requirements of this policy. Students are encouraged to communicate their personalities and creativity through their speech, actions, and artistic endeavors.
Academy students wear school uniforms to:

  • minimize socio-economic differences
  • eliminate distractions and increase the focus on instruction
  • promote an orderly and safe learning environment
  • encourage the practice of professional and responsible dress

All students are expected to adhere to the school dress code on school grounds and at school activities and functions. The most important uniform check of the day happens before a student leaves home.
Please be cautious when purchasing club or activity apparel. Not all apparel sold by school clubs or organizations are approved for daily uniform wear. It is the student’s & parent’s responsibility to verify that these garments can be worn daily. Failure to do so can be an expensive mistake.

No student will be denied attendance or penalized for failing to wear the school uniform due to financial hardship. The student or parent will share with a trusted school adult if obtaining the required uniform presents a financial burden. The Academy seeks assist students experiencing financial hardship in meeting uniform requirements and assistance may be provided in various forms.
