Uniform Policy

uniform_best.jpg

The uniform is a symbol of pride in, and identification with, The Seton Keough High School. It also provides a standard of neatness and simplicity and modesty in dress. The uniform is a sign that the student is a member of the Seton Keough community and has a responsibility to that community. The way in which the uniform is worn, the state of repair, and the cleanliness of it reflect the respect a student has for herself and for Seton Keough.

If a student is out of uniform, an out-of-uniform pass must be obtained from the Vice Principal before admittance to homeroom or class. The consequence for an out-of-uniform infraction is a discipline warning. Repeated violations will result in a detention, suspension, and/or hearing board. The Seton Keough uniform consists of the following:

  • Skirt: Black Watch Plaid Kilt no more than 2” above the knee. Light green skirt, also no more than 2” above the knee can be worn until the first Monday in Oct. and after spring break.
