A goal of the Waukesha Catholic School System is to develop in the student a respect for self and others, pride in one's appearance, and good manners. These traits aid in establishing a proper learning environment. To help develop these traits, promote unity, develop a good self and school image, decrease peer pressure by lessening the clothing competition among students, and help keep clothing costs down, Waukesha Catholic has adopted a uniform and dress policy which will be enforced by the principal and the faculty. Cooperation of both parents and students with the policy is essential.
