On Spirit Day, the school uniform will be optional for all grades. Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to come to school in Cavalier spirit wear. Spirit wear includes Atlanta Classical or Cavalier attire that is in good repair and not marked-up. Students who do not have ACA attire may wear a navy colored shirt, or the school uniform. Nice jeans and shorts are permitted.
Please note that the following are NOT permitted: tank tops, flip-flops or shoes without backs, clothing with holes or tatters, hats, pajamas, costumes, gym clothes (including athletic shorts and leggings), or clothing with printed matter or writing with marker. All shorts, skirts, or dresses must be no more than 2 inches above the knee. For example, jeans and an Atlanta Classical Academy t-shirt or Cavalier polo shirt are acceptable. On the other hand, leggings, basketball, soccer, or other gym shorts are not.
The administration reserves the right to send students home that do not conform to these standards. Cavalier Spirit Day is meant to promote morale and esprit de corps—please treat it with responsibility and maturity so we can do this again in the future.
