Dress Code

The dress code at Marian Catholic High School reflects the social and Christian values we strive to instill within our students: professionalism, modesty, respect for self and others, unity and pride, and positive self-esteem. The dress code fosters a serious approach to academics which relieves the social pressure of students who feel the need to keep up with or be distracted by, the current trends or styles which can prove to be inappropriate for a Catholic school environment.

Changes for Next Year

We don’t have any changes for next year! A couple of reminders:

  • Students may wear a long sleeve, Marian approved and logoed long sleeve t-shirt in the school colors of black, white, gold, or grey. A long sleeve t-shirt is considered outerwear, and so a polo must be worn underneath it.
  • Neck scarves in the school colors of black, white, gold, or grey may be worn during school hours. The school ID and lanyard must still be fully visible when wearing a scarf.
Uniform Pants, Shorts, Skirts Ordering Information

Lands’ End is the sole provider for Marian’s uniform pants, shorts and skirts. Easy to follow information on how to properly size your student is attached below.

Instructions for properly sizing your student: Lands' End Fit Kit Guide

The Lands’ End stores in Oakbrook and Lombard have a uniform fit shop in store that will allow your student to get properly fitted for pants and shorts, and so they can try on styles and sizes before you order. Although uniforms still need to be ordered, both stores have a kiosk where you can place your order while you are there. Both Lands’ End locations have a full spectrum of uniform pants and shorts styles and sizes.

Uniform pants, shorts, and skirts can be purchased online from Lands’ End. We recommend that pants and shorts be ordered by July 26th so that students have their dress code items in time for the start of the school year.
