Preparing hearts and minds for lives of leadership, service, and excellence.

Dress Code


At St. Gabriel Catholic Parish School, we dress with neatness and modesty. Since apparel changes over time and from culture to culture, the dress code is reviewed annually by the School Committee which consists of teachers, parents, and administration. We believe that school is a formal learning setting. We believe that attire DOES both influence and reflect school behavior and learning. We expect students of St Gabriel Catholic School should be dressed in proper attire.
