School Uniforms

Boylan Catholic High School expects its students to follow certain dress code regulations. Uniforms are worn every day. Uniform rules are in effect from the first bell of the morning to the last bell of the day. Students who are sent home for being out of uniform will be considered unexcused and will serve a detention. If the uniform requirement needs to be modified due to medical necessity, the Dean of Students will determine appropriate uniform requirements. Boylan uniforms need to be purchased from the approved suppliers. For boys, Tom Harmer’s is the approved supplier. For girls, the approved supplier is Dennis Uniform.
