We want all Los Altos Classical Christian Academy students to come to school ready to learn.
We believe that clothing strongly influences a child’s attitude toward school and affects his/her approach to learning during the day. By wearing uniforms, students are creating an environment of excellence set forth by the expectations of Los Altos Classical Christian Academy. This allows students to stay focused on their education and not on their clothes. Uniforms allow for an attitude of professionalism that supports a philosophy of dressing up for education; enhancing school pride, unity, and community spirit.
Our uniform supplier is LandsEnd. Everything in the Los Altos Classical Christian Academy’s online catalog provided by LandsEnd is approved for LACCA school wear.
We recommend that students have at least 3 “tops” and 2 “bottoms”.
At least 2 of the tops need to be polo shirts purchased below. One of the tops can be a “bulldog” t-shirt.
The bottoms can be purchased through Lands End or locally. As long as they are uniform style and fabric and one of the proper colors without logos or wording they are fine. See the policy below for details.

Long sleeve bulldog t-shirts or plain white undershirts (tucked in for neatness) may be worn under the emblemed polo shirts for warmth in the classroom.

Hats and Sunglasses
Hats, caps, jacket hoods, or sunglasses may not be worn during class, chapel or assemblies unless there is a medical reason. They may only be worn during recess time.
All hair accessories must be school colors (cobalt blue, gray, black, and white) and not a distraction from learning.
At all times clothing and accessories may not advertise alcohol, drugs, or other offensive material.
Please check your student each morning for all items of uniform clothing. This would include socks and shoes, as well as a clean and well-groomed hairstyle that will not be a distraction throughout their day.
If your student arrives at school “out of uniform” a note will be sent home as a reminder. If there are continued days of uniform unpreparedness, a parent will be called to bring appropriate uniform clothing. Thank you for your part in building success into our school.
