Mesa Academy for Advanced Studies Dress Code/Uniform

Academy students are expected to dress in a manner that reinforces our mission of excellence and school pride. To accomplish this, the Academy has a uniform dress code. 

  • The uniform top is a polo - red, white, and navy for all grades, (6th – 8th grade may also choose black). The top must have an embroidered Academy crest.
  • All layered clothing (under shirts) must be white only. 
  • All outerwear such as sweatshirts, sweaters and jackets must also be of solid Academy colors (Academy crests are optional). 
  • The uniform bottom includes your choice of pants, shorts, skirts, and/or capris in a solid khaki color.  Shorts must have at least a 2-inch inseam and extend to the tip of the student's fingers.  Socks and leggings must be a solid Academy color.  Footwear must meet classroom safety guidelines.  
  • Hats and sunglasses may be worn outside only. No other articles of clothing are permissible.  Academy Knights are expected to be in uniform unless it is a designated “Spirit Day”.
  • Optional black shorts and a grey t-shirt top are acceptable during Health and Wellness classes.  See Mrs. Randolph for details.
