AXL Academy's dress code is listed in the scholar's handbook and below.

Scholars follow a simple dress code to demonstrate respect for themselves and others, and scholars must arrive at school in dress code every day.

Solid (no graphics), non-hooded, navy blue, grey, white, black or orange colored shirt. Scholars must wear solid colored pants with an appropriate fit, condition, and length. Shorts, skirts, skorts and jumpers must extend to fingertips or longer.


There are 2 ways to acquire the tops for the dress code:

  1. Acquire collared or non-collared navy blue or grey shirts (logo not required)

  2. Order shirts anytime at Land's End

  3. Purchase shirts at AXL Academy $8/shirt or $20 for 3 shirts (Cash or check)

In cold weather, all of the above applies. Scholars may also wear solid white, black, orange, grey or navy blue long sleeve shirts under their polos or t-shirts. Scholars may also wear navy blue, white, black, orange or grey fleece jackets, fleece vests, sweaters or hoodies. Note: Hoods or hats are not permitted inside the school. Scholars may also wear solid grey, navy blue, white or black tights under skirts, skorts or jumpers during cold weather.

Scholars will only wear winter jackets outside. Please make sure scholars are dressed for comfort in the classroom without wearing a winter jacket (i.e. long sleeves).
All scholars must wear sneakers that are suitable for running, jumping, hiking, and playing outside every day. Scholars may not wear “Heelies.” During inclement weather, scholars are welcome to wear boots.
AXL’s dress code is designed to be modest and functional.  As such, scholars may not:


  • Wear hoods nor hats indoors.

  • Wear excessive or distracting jewelry. Earrings must be less than one inch in size.  Scholars wearing necklaces need to keep them safely under their shirts to avoid injury on the playground.  

  • Wear gang-affiliated symbols of any kind.
