Dress Code

Marin Catholic is committed to providing a safe, respectful environment for its staff and students. MC students are expected to follow our behavior guidelines, based on respect, at all times.

Enrolled families: Please refer to the Resource Board in MC Connect for the official Parent/Student Handbook which includes more detailed dress code information. 
Marin Catholic students are expected to dress in a manner appropriate for school. General appearance should not blatantly or subtly promote unhealthy or negative attitudes, practices or lifestyles. While on campus, students are expected to be neatly groomed, appropriately dressed, and boys clean-shaven. Any clothing that is torn, stained, inappropriately patched, or in a state of disrepair is unacceptable. Appropriate shoes must be worn at all times. The Deans of Students will determine whether or not specific clothing and/or jewelry are appropriate for school, and they may make changes to the dress code as necessary throughout the year.

General Dress Code Guidelines:
