Dress Guidelines

PACE Career Academy simulates an actual workplace including the appropriateness of dress. Students will be provided with guidance on business-appropriate clothing and resources for appropriate clothing if necessary. Pajamas and overly revealing clothing are not appropriate.
PACE Career Academy relies upon the good judgment of its students regarding their manner of dress, cleanliness and grooming habits. Students are reminded the school has the legal right to forbid articles or modes of dress which disrupt the educational mission of the school. Students are encouraged to express their individuality while adhering to these guidelines:
The following are general guidelines; additional restrictions may be added depending on internship sites and school activities.
  • Hats, bandannas, hoods and sunglasses are not to be worn inside the building.
  • Shirts must be long enough to cover the midriff.
  • Clothing must completely cover undergarments.
  • Tank tops, sheer (see-through) clothing, halter tops, tube tops, strapless and off-the- shoulder tops are not allowed.
  • Necklines on all tops must modestly cover the chest.
  • Skirts, shorts and dresses must reach the mid-thigh.
  • Clothing that references sex, drugs, alcohol, weapons, tobacco products, discrimination, violence or gang-related activity or membership is not permitted.
  • Jewelry, accessories, and clothing that include sharp, spiked or items otherwise potentially injurious to another are not permitted.
Students wearing inappropriate clothing will be sent to the office and asked to take corrective action.
