Uniform Information & Dress Code

Mater Dei High School believes that a student's appearance has an impact on his or her attitude and behavior at school. Respect for the school community, for the students themselves and for what the school is giving the students is manifested by an attitude of "dressing up" rather than "dressing down" for school. The dress code is also designed to help students develop a sense of modesty and decorum. It should educate them in what is appropriate dress for the proper time and place.

As a sign of mutual respect, as one way of creating an environment of excellence, and of providing an opportunity for the individual student to make a personal commitment to what the school is about, the following dress code has been developed and updated. 

Specific dress codes are described in detail in the Parent/Student Handbook. 

Mater Dei High School students are to purchase their uniforms through the Vicki Marsha Uniform Company (VMU). You may visit VMU’s store or if you know your sizes, place your order online or by phone.
