Uniform code and skirt length

Our uniform guidelines ensure all of our students feel comfortable, ready to learn, and united as a community. In addition, our professional dress code on campus prepares our students for professional careers later in life and honors our Catholic traditions. Starting in January, Carondelet administrators will conduct uniform checks with special attention paid to skirt length. Please work with your daughter over the break to ensure her skirt length is mid-thigh or longer: the skirt hem needs to fall below her fingertips when her arms are relaxed at her sides. 

Please email Caitlin Main if you have any questions.

Some seats are still available for reservation for the Spring Semester Shuttle.  Reservation requests will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis.

Who can attend the reteat? The retreat is for students, alumnae, mothers of students and alumnae, aunts, grandmothers, or other "women of heart" who have been influential in the lives of our students. 

This retreat will take place on Sunday, February 24. Please contact
