Dress code: Since the educational process is a formal endeavor, La Salle Academy has a student dress code. This dress code supports the attitude of respect we have for one another. Cleanliness, neatness, sensibility, reasonable modesty, and safety (in the case of shoes) guide the choice of the dress code. Permitted and prohibited clothing and grooming styles are detailed in the Student Handbook, which addresses policies and rules for students.
