O'Hara Catholic School

Dress Code

O'Hara has a uniform dress code that was designed to foster school pride, to create a non-competitive dress environment, and to be easy for students and parents. Presenting a good appearance shows respect for each other and for one's self. In general, students are to be neat, clean and modest. The O'Hara Catholic School emblem or logo is permitted on clothing; otherwise clothing is to be free of logos, advertising, pictures or other messages. Clothing should fit properly and allow ease of movement for participation in outdoor and other activities, but not be oversized. All undergarments are to be completely covered.

The complete O'Hara dress code policy is available in the school office. Basically, the uniform top is a white, navy blue, burgundy, or forest green solid-colored, collared shirt, blouse, or turtleneck. Sweaters in solid white, navy blue, burgundy, or forest green and O'Hara sweatshirts may be worn over a collared shirt. Pants or shorts are khaki, navy blue, or forest green twill or corduroy. Waistlines must fit at the waist, not worn at hip level. Pants must be hemmed and not cut off. Skirts, skorts and jumpers are navy blue, khaki, forest green, or Belair Plaid in wool, twill or corduroy. Shorts and skirt lengths are to fall between the knee and 2" above the knee. Makeup and dyed or bleached hair is not permitted. Jewelry is limited to a single stud earring in each ear for girls, and a cross or religious pendant for boys and girls. There are also free dress days or other special occasion dress days.
