Important Update
In early June 2021, Providence High School announced their revised dress code policy. The policy revisions were a collaborative effort and partnership between Providence students, Administration, and our Equity and Social Justice Taskforce. Read the full announcement.

The Providence High School Uniform & Dress Code encourages student choice, self-awareness, and personal responsibility. Providence High School believes student attire in a learning environment should be comfortable and safe for all students, while maintaining, supporting, and encouraging the Providence brand.
