 Uniform Resale Option

The CA Home and School Association provides uniform resale events throughout year with opportunities to sell and buy previously worn uniforms. This is a good way to obtain gently used uniforms for less cost. All campus uniforms are represented in the resale, based on what sellers provide. The resale events are held on the lower level of the elementary campus.

  • A uniform resale is held during registration in August.
  • Additional, uniform resales are announced throughout the year in weekly parent newsletters.

For more information on uniform resale, please contact Uniform Resale Coordinator, Beth Tucker, btucker@collegedaleacademy.com

CA Uniform Code 

These guidelines are not published as a moral standard of right or wrong, but are a statement of what students attending Collegedale Academy are expected to wear. They are meant to avoid distractions and help promote good decorum in the classroom. The following guidelines are meant to help students present themselves ready for school in the proper dress attire. Students are to be within these guidelines for school at 8:00 a.m., until the end of their school day. Students who are not in class, but remain on campus for work or appointments, must stay in the school dress code. School dress should be clean, properly fitted and modest. In matters of opinion, the judgment of teachers and administration will prevail. Violators of the dress code will be sent to the office if the infraction is not immediately correctable. They will be required to stay in the office until the dress code is rectified. The student will receive zero on any work missed during the time in the office.
