FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What is the uniform?
    The standard of dress for YWLA scholars, both fifth and sixth grade, will mirror the same standard of dress as the rest of the campus, including khaki pants and polo shirts. The only additional elements to the standard of dress include patches and a spirit shirt.  

    Embroidered patches will be available for purchase and will be added to the front of collared shirts for YWLA scholars. Scholarships may be available for the purchase of embroidered patches. Please see campus counselor for more information. The patch, along with a YWLA spirit shirt, are both available for purchase through Mary Harris Intermediate. Both will become the uniform attire for the 2018-19 school year. Spirit shirts will be worn during off campus service-learning projects and during instruction days that are pre-approved by campus administration.
