UNIFORM POLICIES/DRESS CODES
Uniforms are not required in P3s or P4s but they are required in PreK and all other grade levels.
Immaculate Conception, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and St. Francis each have their appearance standards. As students grow in maturity, they are expected to pay more attention to the uniform in which they do their “work,” which is school.

The GTACS or St. Francis logo may only be applied to non-uniform apparel or gear, and only with prior approval of the GTACS marketing or athletics department.
There are two ways to buy/sell used uniforms. One is the annual Used Uniform Sale. The other is the GTACS Uniform Exchange Facebook page. Be sure to take advantage of these money-saving tools, and also help us preserve the integrity of our uniform policy by not buying or selling non-current garments.
JEAN DAY/DRESS DOWN DAY
The third Friday of every month is designated as a Jean or Dress Down Day (some exceptions apply). On these days, students may bring in a dollar or more and wear Gladiator spirit wear or a suitable other shirt/top of their choosing. Please guide your students toward appropriate attire that reflects our Christ-centered environment. Through the years, our students and their families have donated thousands of dollars to local charities such as Boots for Kids, the Father Fred Foundation, the Pregnancy Care Center and more. Occasionally, special Dress Down/Jean Days may be declared at the discretion of the Principals, Superintendent, or Bishop.
SPIRIT WEAR/GLAD GEAR
Gladiators love to wear their school spirit! You can purchase hats, sweatshirts, and other Gladiator apparel through the our local partner, Threads.
