Uniform Policy

The school uniform is intended to develop a sense of pride, modesty and self-discipline.  By choosing to attend St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School, students and parents make a commitment to comply with and support the school uniform policy. Students must remain in full uniform throughout the school day while in the building.  This includes the hallway, cafeteria and atrium.

Students who are consistently out of uniform will see the Vice Principal for progressive discipline. 

ALL UNIFORM ITEMS ARE TO BE PURCHASED FROM ISW UNIFORMS (905-844-1414) https://www.iswuniforms.com

If your family is in financial need and requires support with your uniform, please contact your Vice Principal.
