NTCA dress code policy

All tops, including sweaters and fleece for cooler weather must be purchased from this website. Additional items for cooler weather will be posted in the coming months.

Bottoms should be purchased elsewhere, according to the following:

1.    All students may wear pants, knee-length shorts or capris in solid black, solid gray, or solid khaki of a cotton twill material. Leggings, jeans, tight-fitting pants, or short shorts are not permitted. Please note that due to the active nature of our inquiry-based projects, we do not include dresses and skirts as part of our Dress Code.

2.    K-2 students may also wear skorts in the above colors.

Shoes are required at all times. For safety reasons, sandals, open-toed or open-backed shoes are not appropriate.

Soft-sole, tied shoes are required for P.E.  NTCA P.E. attire is optional for students in Grades K-6. However, students in Grades 7-12 taking P.E. classes are required to change into the NTCA P.E. shorts and one of the NTCA dryfit T shirts found on this website.


Explorers Uniform Policy

For The Explorers Preschool, students should wear any comfortable pants, or shorts that are easy to move in due to the active nature of our program. Although there is no specific material or color that is required, any pants or shorts that match with the uniform tops or t-shirts is recommended.

Matching skirts are also permitted as long as the child is wearing shorts underneath.
