Uniform Guidelines & Information

Upper School

Saint Thomas Academy is a military institution where discipline is enforced and students are required to meet the military standard for wearing the uniform. A neat and well- groomed appearance is fundamental to building pride and esprit while simultaneously honoring the many distinguished alumni of this institution. The faculty, staff and senior cadet leaders are responsible to ensure that cadets present a neat and orderly appearance. Cadets must wear the uniform correctly and completely at all times on and off campus; it may not be worn in parts. When civilian attire is authorized for special events, such as field trips, cadets will wear a dress shirt with collar, tie, slacks (no cargo pants), and dress shoes. When the Class B1 uniform is worn, the authorized civilian attire is an open-collared, short- sleeved shirt without a tie.

Middle School

Saint Thomas Academy is an educational institution where discipline is enforced and students are required to meet the standard for wearing a uniform.

Mothers' Club Garment Bag

Required

On formal uniform days your son will be required to bring his blouse coat to school. When he is not wearing it, the blouse coat can be stored in his locker. To keep the blouse coat clean and to protect it from being caught in locker doors, a garment bag is recommended.

The STA Mothers’ Club makes available a lightweight but sturdy garment bag with handles on the top and outside zipper pocket to hold additional items such as the gloves and uniform hat. The majority of boys order the garment bag,  but is not required by STA that you purchase one.

If you would like to order a garment bag from the Mothers’ Club, complete your purchase through the form below.
