Greensburg Central Catholic Junior-Senior High School is committed to the affirmation of the self-worth of each person. We believe that the style of dress influences the students’ self-concept, so a dress code has been instituted. Enrollment at Central signifies the intent of each student to abide by the standards set forth. Final decisions on dress code applications will be the sole responsibility of the school administration. At all times, the administration reserves the right to evaluate and critique an individual student’s interpretation of the dress code policy as evidenced by his/her appearance at that time. Final interpretation will be at the discretion of the administration. Please see below for dress code guidelines.
- Hoodies/outerwear are only permitted when traveling from building to building. They should not be worn in classrooms, hallways, the cafeteria, or any other area of the building.
- Team dress downs (sports, clubs, etc.): teams will be permitted to dress down only twice per season. Teams may dress down on senior night and the day of their first playoff game. Teams are expected to all wear the same sports uniform top or team spirit wear with their school uniform bottom.
- Students are expected to be in compliance with the dress code at all times during the school day. Students out of compliance will face disciplinary action.
- GCC has two official uniform providers. These are the only two companies authorized to provide embroidered uniform pieces.

Injuries and Uniforms
Students are required to wear their uniforms when injured unless they are unable to do so due to an injury. When it is necessary to be out of uniform, the clothing worn must be neat and appropriate. A doctor’s excuse must be provided if it is necessary for the student to be out of uniform.
A student who is out of uniform must report to the administration for an Out of Uniform excuse.
Early dismissals and late arrivals are not an excuse to be out of uniform. Athletic events are not special dress up days, regular uniforms must be worn. A note from a parent is not an excuse to be out of uniform. Only the administration may give permission for any student to be out of uniform.
