Chestnut Hill Academy students must wear a complete uniform at all times. Adherence to these uniform regulations promotes peer acceptance and school pride, lessens the emphasis on fashion, instills student discipline, and enhances academic focus. Uniforms may be purchased from the Dennis Uniform Company located in Tukwila or through the Lands’ End catalog. There are several days each year which are “free dress” days; these will be announced in advance. Uniforms are not required during intersession periods or summer camp. The Dress Uniform is required every Monday, unless it is a PE day for your grade. There will also be other days in which Dress Uniforms will be required such as picture day, most field trips and special events like the Festival of Peace and Light and Moving Up Ceremony.  On other days, uniform options may be worn. All ‘outer’ wear worn in the building (sweaters, polo shirts, and fleeces) are required to have the CHA logo on them.
