Uniform Guidelines

Students at Liberty Academy of Columbus wear uniforms daily. The purpose of uniforms is to reduce distractions for self and others, facilitate an increased sense of camaraderie, and elevate the tone of the school while simplifying enforcement of appropriate school attire.

Purchasing Uniforms:
Liberty Academy students will purchase all uniform tops (required to adorn embroidered school crest) and girls’ plaid pieces from Global Schoolwear. The purchasing process will be shared at the beginning of each year. Khaki pants, shorts, skorts, and skirts may be purchased through Global Schoolwear or locally. French Toast brand is preferred for a local option.

Compliance and Enforcement of Uniforms:
Full uniform compliance must be observed. Uniforms should be clean and in good shape (no rips or major stains) and students are expected to be in uniform while on campus unless specified otherwise. The administration is responsible for the determination of the policy. The enforcement of the policy is the responsibility of parents, administrators, faculty, and staff.

Uniforms must fit appropriately and not be adjusted for style. Growth throughout a school year is an insufficient reason for an inappropriately fitted uniform. Compliance to the following standards are required and at the discretion of administration and staff when questions arise. Where choices are given, the style or item should not draw unnecessary attention (hairstyle/hair length/hair color, hair accessories, nail polish, piercings, make-up, etc).

 

Other notes about uniform compliance:

  • No rolling of uniform pieces.

  • Bottom hem of skirts, skorts, and shorts must be within 2 inches of the top of the knee.

  • Bike shorts should be worn under skirts without built-in shorts.

  • Shirts must be tucked in at all times while in the building.

 

Uniform options vary by grade. Details will be listed below. A full list of school uniform options is available upon acceptance at Liberty Academy.

Students may choose any solid, neutral colored, close-toed shoe (black, brown, tan, grey, white, navy) for daily use.

No hats, outdoor boots, or coats/jackets will be worn to class.

Spirit Days:
Liberty Academy plans to institute occasional planned Spirit Days to promote and enhance the positive culture of the school. Details will be given as these days are planned, but will mostly include wearing Liberty Academy branded T-shirts and sweatshirts with jeans.
