Uniform Policy

In making the decision to attend Assumption Catholic Secondary School, students have made a commitment to comply with the school uniform policy from their time of arrival to the end of each school day.

It is the student’s responsibility to wear the uniform properly. A student who is not in proper uniform will not be admitted to class without the Principal or Vice-Principal’s authorization. The Principal and Vice-Principal(s) have been authorized to send home, as appropriate, any student who is not in uniform.

As of February 1st, 2021, our uniform provider is McCarthy Uniforms and can be reached at 1-800-668-8261 or visit their website at mccarthyuniforms.ca.

The following are the possible consequences if students are in contravention of the uniform policy:

First incident – verbal warning
Subsequent incidents – detention

*Please note that multiple or serious uniform infractions, including defiance, may lead to possible suspension.

Dress Code

  • McCarthy navy dress pants, (note: McCarthy or previous ISW only)
  • McCarthy white oxford shirt; short sleeve French cut blouse, single pocket, white buttons, button down collar, short or long sleeves with embroidered crest
  • McCarthy golf shirt, girls and boys with embroidered crest
  • McCarthy dark blue zip polo sweatshirt; V-Neck pullover; V-Neck vest; cotton, embroidered Assumption logo. A collared shirt must be worn underneath

  • McCarthy rugby shirt with school logo
  • McCarthy navy boys and girls walking shorts, pleated, worn with solid white athletic socks
  • Solid black, closed shoes (no open-toed or open back sandals or clogs)

Only McCarthy navy dress pants, unaltered, will be permitted. We caution parents and students NOT to substitute a blue pant from other retailers.

Parents and students should note that students who need to wear non-regulation footwear will be required to produce a medical note informing the school of the time period required for this uniform exemption.

Hats, visors, caps, headbands, bandanas or any other headgear are not to be worn in the school at any time. Also, they are not to be brought to any class. These items, along with non-uniform sweaters and jackets, are subject to confiscation if worn in the building or if brought to class. Girls may wear navy blue or black hair bands provided they are no wider than 2.5 cm.

Open-toed sandals are not part of the school uniform and, therefore, are not to be worn on the school grounds.

Students may wear a plain white t-shirt under the uniform shirt or blouse. Plain white means no writing, no logos, and no diagrams.

There are no substitutions to the Assumption Catholic Secondary School Dress Code.

All regular Civvies’ day rules apply. They include:

  • No beachwear
  • No hats
  • No ripped or torn clothing
  • No chains, dog collars or studded jewellery etc.
  • No bare shoulders or midriffs (including spaghetti straps)
  • No inappropriate or offensive logos or slogans on clothing

The School Administration will review students wearing any clothing deemed inappropriate and action will result. Thank you for your cooperation with our school uniform policy.
