Uniforms and Spirit Wear

Siena Catholic Academy Uniform Dress Code

The purpose of a dress code in a Catholic school is to foster a sense of community and a safe, secure, and productive learning environment. This is a requirement of students at Siena Catholic Academy. Our expectation is that parents will act as partners with the school staff in the enforcement of this Dress Code
