Uniforms



Regina Caeli’s philosophy is lived in every aspect of our center’s life including the choices of uniforms and uniform policy. The virtue of modesty is communicated through careful selection of uniforms that meet our concrete standard of shoulders to knees being covered at all times. In addition, uniforms are a symbol of unity to the community, and we find our students come to the tutoring center ready to work when they are dressed in their RCA uniform.

Practical Guidelines for Modesty 


*Note: Modesty guidelines of shoulders to knees and everything in-between apply to all family members, including siblings, when on the center premises or attending an RCA sponsored event.

 

Coverage

  • Skirt Length
    • Skirts should fall below the knee when sitting.
  • Front Neckline
    • Your bra should not show. No cleavage should show.
  • Back Neckline
    • Do not wear a plunging back. The back neckline should not go below the back strap of an ordinary bra.
  • Shoulders
    • Shoulders should be completely covered at all times including extra-curricular RCA activities, this applies to both students and staff. Do not wear strapless gowns or spaghetti straps.
  • Gaps
    • No portion of the stomach or lower back should show when bending over.
  • Tightness
    • Check both your front and your back. Clothes should not cling to the bust or behind. There should be a little room. If your bra or underwear lines show, the garment is too tight.
  • Transparency
    • Check skirts for transparency by standing in front of a light. If you can see the outlines of your legs, wear a slip. If you can see your bra through your shirt, wear a camisole.
