Dress Code

Brighton Academy believes that learning about appropriate dress is an important part of a student's education and personal growth. An awareness of dressing for occasions and events will prepare students for success in their chosen careers.

For this reason, Brighton Academy maintains a conservative dress code for all grade levels, Pre-K through 12th grade. This may not include all present and future clothing styles.
