dress code

Here at Saint Joseph's Private Episcopal Academy, we believe in the benefit of school uniforms. School uniforms help students resist peer pressure to buy trendy clothes, help identify visiting students in the school, diminish economic and social barriers between students, and increase a sense of belonging and school pride. Private school uniforms don't have to compromise a child's identity– schools, students and their parents can all come up with ways for children to express themselves and share in the advantages!

We have chosen Lands' End as our uniform supplier. Please use the link below to shop our dress code-approved items.

Saint Joseph's Private Episcopal Academy also offers the Uniform Exchange Closet. This allows parents to donate clean, gently-used uniforms their child has outgrown in exchange for uniforms in the child's new size. This is a great time- and money-saving option for parents. Stock is always varied, so if you're interested in perusing what's available, please visit the School Office at our Boynton Beach campus.
