A Day at CATS

  • Dress Code


    The CATS uniform is designed to give students and parents some choice and flexibility while promoting a neat, professional style of dress similar to what is required in many career settings. We want our students to focus on success, and we feel that our uniform supports this focus. The uniform is also designed to allow students to participate in exercise and physical education.
