Uniform Policy

Uniforms are a symbol of pride in, and identification with, Charlotte Islamic Academy. They provide a standard of neatness and modesty and are a sign of membership of the Charlotte Islamic Academy community. Neat, clean uniforms reflect the respect a student has for our Academy.

Our students are expected to dress in a way that demonstrates a positive self-image and an attitude of excellence in performance and achievement. students are expected to be in full school uniform each day. Neatness, cleanliness, and modesty should be observed at all times.  Uniforms should also be worn on all school-sponsored field trips unless otherwise specified in a written notification.
