The headmaster or Dean of Students will determine adherence of dress code policy. If there are any questions regarding the uniform policy, please feel free to contact the Dean of Students.

 

The school has chosen Flynn O’Hara as the provider of our uniforms. Flynn O’Hara is a proud family-owned and operated school uniform business.

Veritas divides the dress code into “Non-formal Days” and “Formal Days”.

The Lower School (K - 6) will have “Non-formal days” on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and “Formal Days” on Tuesday and Thursdays.
The Upper School (7-12) will have a “Non-formal Day” on Fridays only. Monday through Thursdays will be “Formal Days” for the Upper School.

 

The default dress code for all field trips is the formal uniform. The clothing for Non-Formal Days can be bought at any store. The clothing for “Formal” Days must be bought at Flynn O’Hara and have the logo put on, if applicable.
