Incarnate Word Academy maintains a code of dress and grooming consistent with its character as a private, Catholic, college-preparatory school. This code contributes to a seriousness of purpose, a constructive learning atmosphere, and the development of sound personal habits and a positive self-image.

To teach the total child, teachers and administrators will instruct students with regards to proper and acceptable dressing and grooming habits. This is to include stressing neatness, cleanliness, acceptability, and appropriateness. Students should be dressed in such a manner that instruction is enhanced and not hindered. Neatness, cleanliness, and appropriateness are to be the guiding factors.

The entire staff will enforce the dress code. Violations of any of the policies listed herein will result in disciplinary action and/or being sent home. Students are expected to be in proper attire when they arrive on the campus.

Parents are expected to support this policy by ensuring that their children wear only the approved school attire.
