Dress Code: It is VERY important to review the dress code guidelines prior to attending the dance. Attire that is inappropriate for the occasion or deviates from modesty in the judgment of a school administrator may result in being denied admission and/or a Saturday detention will be issued.
Attending a Catholic school dance is optional. Attire must represent the modesty acceptable for a Catholic school dance. Guidelines will be strictly enforced.

The Junior Boat Dance is a Semi-Formal event. Attire that is inappropriate for the occasion or deviates from modesty in the judgment of a school administrator may result in being denied admission and/or a Saturday detention will be issued. Attire must represent the modesty acceptable for a Catholic school dance.

Each year, the most difficult task for administrators is the determination of modesty for students at school dances. Traditional interpretations are often at odds with fashion and cultural trends. Modesty is admittedly a subjective interpretation, but one which we have a duty to uphold. Students should therefore err on the side of modesty and formality and not put school administrators in the difficult position of upholding school standards. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and respect of the school dance rules.

Ladies: For ladies, a tasteful, elegant dress for a Catholic school dance is required. Dresses may not be shorter than 4 inches above the knee. This includes any slit.

  • Dresses that are too revealing, are skin tight or form-fitting, expose the midriff or cleavage, or are too short in length are not appropriate. Dresses may not be backless (below the elbow), may not be see-through or have cut-outs.  Please be modest with sheer material. A sheer layer that reveals more than 4 inches above the knee or a low cut neckline is not acceptable for a Catholic high school dance. If you purchase a dress with a slit that does not meet those guidelines, you will need to have the slit sewn. Covering a cut-out with fabric will not suffice unless that fabric is permanently sewn into the dress.
  • Dresses must not be low cut in the front. Be especially careful with halter-style dresses.
  • Dresses and jumpsuits must have straps.
  • Dresses must meet OLP requirements without the use of cover-ups (shawls, jackets, sweaters, etc).
  • Ladies may wear pant suits/and dressy jumpsuits.

When selecting your attire for the evening, please remember it may be cold and windy on the boat.

Gentlemen: are required to wear a long sleeve, button up, collared shirt with a regular tie or bow tie. They must wear dress pants (no jeans) with belt or suspenders and a vest, sport coat, suit, or formal sweater. They must wear dress shoes. Tennis shoes are not permitted. Shirts should remain tucked in for the duration of the event.   

IMPORTANT: Students/and or their guests who are dressed inappropriately (which is determined at the discretion of the administrator/teacher at the event) will be denied admission without a refund and/or may receive a Saturday detention.

If you have questions about the appropriateness of your attire, please speak with Mrs. Marlena Conroy, Assistant Principal.
