THE NEW HCPA LOOK: DRESS CODE

Why?

  • There are many data-driven reasons why HCPA has a dress code:

  • Minimizing peer pressure

  • Improving the appearance of the student body

  • Reinforcing an academic atmosphere

  • Creating a desirable learning environment

  • Learning how to dress for success and college readiness

  • Enhancing safety as non-students on campus are easily recognized

  • Making it easier to shop and get dressed in the morning!
