Global Outreach Charter Academy

School Dress Code Policy


GOCA has set a higher standard of dress to encourage greater respect for students and others, which will result in a higher standard of behavior. This distinct feature will minimize classroom distractions and promote student learning.

Every student in attendance shall wear the school uniform in accordance with GOCA’s Dress Code Policy. Parents select to have their children attend Global Outreach Charter Academy with full acknowledgement of the expectations and policies. Purchasing uniform from GOCA is a policy requirement. The Dress Code Policy will be enforced by school teachers and administration.

School shirts, hoodies, and PE shirts should be purchased in the School Main Office.
