Dress and Grooming Standards

Legacy Academy does not require uniforms, but does have a dress and grooming standard. This standard helps maintain a positive and moral atmosphere, ensures modesty and cleanliness, and invites the Spirit of God into the classroom.

“Obedience to small things creates a spirit of obedience in all things, and thus invites the blessings of heaven.”

— Elder Kim B. Clark


My Legacy Standards

I will strive to keep these standards at home, at school,

and everywhere

  • I will remember I am a child of God and the worth of each soul is great

  • I will be honest with Heavenly Father, others, and myself

  • I will honor my parents, teachers and fellow students and do my part to strengthen my class

  • I will have a positive and willing attitude toward learning

  • I will use the names of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ reverently

  • I will use uplifting language and avoid using crude or inappropriate words

  • I will read, watch, and listen only to things that are pleasing to Heavenly Father

  • I will keep my body sacred and not participate in things that are harmful to me

  • I will dress modestly and follow our school standards to show respect for Heavenly Father and myself

  • I will live now to be worthy to go to the temple and do my part to have an eternal family

The dress and grooming standards are based on the following principles:

1. Our bodies are sacred gifts from Heavenly Father.
2. When we are well groomed and modestly dressed, we invite the companionship of the Spirit.
3. Our dress and appearance influences the way we act.

Legacy strives for excellence in learning and behavior, thus the expectation for dress and grooming is a high standard. Here is a list of suggested items that help students dress appropriately for Legacy.


Items that are too casual in attire for Legacy expectations:

Ripped or tattered jeans with holes

Sweatpants or joggers

Athletic pants, yoga pants, or leggings 
T-shirts with large writing or symbols 
Sweatshirts or hoodies, except Legacy spirit-wear 
Active attire (yoga pants, leggings)
Clothing with writing and/or symbols
Flip flops or slides
Clothing with holes

Blankets in class
Extremes hair color, styles, or piercings 

These lists are not all inclusive. Students and parents are to use their best judgment. We expect students to self govern their dress and appearance before they leave for school by asking themselves:

-Am I modest?

-Are my clothes and hair neat and clean?

-Does my apperaance say, "I am ready to do my best school work?"

-Does my appearance invite the spirit to be with me?

"Stand out; be different from the world. You and I know that you are to be a light to the world. Therefore, the Lord needs you to look like, sound like, act like, and dress like a true disciple of Jesus Christ." (President Nelson, Worldwide Youth Devotional,  June 2018)
