One of the hallmarks of Jewish behavior is modesty of dress. Part of being an Academy student is an understanding that, as Jews, we need not adopt the fashions and lifestyles of the world at large—no matter how popular they may be. Our pride and positive self-image are reflected in how we dress.

The following dress regulations are in effect for the entire student body whenever entering the building during regular school hours, finals week, vacations, summer school, to watch extra-curricular activities, after-school classes, or committee meetings. In addition, at ICJA extra curricular events which take place outside of the building students (e.g. sporting events, events, etc.) are expected to be in ICJA “relaxed” dress code. Students who do not adhere to dress code will need to correct the problem for the first two offenses. On the third offense, students will be sent home with a one-day suspension.

Teachers, Parents & Visitors to ICJA

In order to maintain the proper academic tone in our school, we ask that all non-students (teachers, parents, visitors, etc.) entering our building conform to a modest mode of dress in keeping with our school standards.

Additional Policies

  • Tzitzit and Kippah must be worn at all times.
  • Hats or hoods may not be worn during school.
  • Hair must be neat, of appropriate length, and in consonance with halacha. Halacha requires that boys’ sideburns extend below the upper juncture of the ear to the head.  Students may not have extreme hairstyles or unnatural hair color.

General Guidelines

All clothing must be neat and clean. Torn clothing is unacceptable.

If students must change into clothing not in conformance with the dress code (e.g. sports uniforms), they must do so in the locker rooms and immediately exit the building.

Consequences for Uniform Violations:

After much discussion with students and parents, and with a sincere desire to avoid violations of rules and focus instead, on the much more important task of inspirational and constructive teaching and learning, we have created the following set of simplified rules and consequences for violations of our dress code:

  1. Female staff members will be the only ones to address dress code issues with female students and male staff will address male students.
  2. We expect that all exchanges regarding dress code will be respectful to both staff and student.
  3. If a student is in violation of dress code, he or she will be sent to the office either at the beginning or end of a class period.

Shirts:
a. On the first and second violations, students will be sent to the office. If the violation is regarding shirts, students will be given a shirt to wear that must be returned to the office on the following day, clean and folded. A note will be sent home to inform parents of the violation. The shirt that was worn in violation will be kept at the office until the end of the quarter.

b. On the third violation the student will be sent home with a one-day suspension.

Skirts (Girls):
a. On the first and second violations of dress code, students will be sent to the office. A maxi skirt will be given to the student to wear that must be returned to the office on the following day, clean and folded. A note will be sent home to inform parents of the violation. The skirt that was worn in violation of dress code (e.g., if it did not cover the knee or had a slit) will be kept at the office until the end of the quarter.

b. On the third violation the student will be sent home with a one-day suspension.

Slacks (Boys):
a. Because we cannot maintain a stock of slacks in all possible sizes, on both the first and second violations of dress code, students will be sent home to change. If, for whatever reason, the student cannot go home, he will remain in the office until arrangements can be made. A note will be sent home to inform parents of the violation.

b. On the third violation the student will be sent home with a one-day suspension.

Please note: We have done our best to articulate the ICJA uniform policy. However, if there are any questions, please feel free to consult with a member of the administration.
