Cathedral Prep Uniform

The new uniform code presents students with options for different points in the year (Quarters 1& 4/Quarters 2 & 3), which is something the vast majority of students involved on the Uniform Committee appeared to really like. Please see the details outlined here: Prep New Uniforms.pdf.

Just as a notice, sweater, quarter zips, ties, polos, pants, and skorts can only be purchased through Flynn O’Hara, other brands will fall in violation of the dress code. The new uniform can be seen on the Flynn O’Hara website, all access information can be found on the document here: Cathedral Preparatory School Ways to Order Information PA774.pdf. When ordered, the sweater, quarter zip, girls and boys polos will all have the school seal embroidered on the left chest.

Now, for the part that will demand a little patience and attention to detail, the transition over next year as we will still be on two campuses. Below is the outline for the uniform expectations for each class heading into the 2021-2022 school year:
