Why Do We Have a
Dress Code?

At Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton School, community and camaraderie are strong pillars of our school values of modesty, harmony, respect, and self-worth. The school uniform and dress code unite students both visually and spiritually. It helps to create an environment where all students can feel positive about their appearance when in the company of their fellow students.
