Why School Uniforms?

Students and staff at Grand Traverse Academy wear uniforms daily.  We have chosen uniforms because they:

  • Allow students and adults to focus on learning
  • Help eliminate judgement based on attire 
  • Improve the safety and security of the school
  • Improve behavior and discipline in the school
  • Help develop a sense of unity
  • Ensure that inappropriate clothing will not be worn to school


School Uniform Guidelines

Please refer to the chart below for information on what uniform pieces and colors are available and which vendor carries them: 

Uniform Guidelines by Grade Level PDF

Note that these guidelines are in effect beginning with the 2018-19 school year, with some previous colors "grandfathered" the first year.
