Dress Code
Trivium expects all students to maintain a neat and modest appearance. Students who fail to follow the policy may be sent home or, in cases of repeat offenses, may be temporarily restricted from on-campus activities. It is not our intent to be rigid in this regard, but we do mix students of all ages and wish to be considerate of their sensibilities.

In general

All garments must fit and be worn in the manner in which they were designed.
Clothes should be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times.
Hair colors and styles cannot be overly distracting. The final decision on this matter will be left to Trivium Administration
Inappropriate lettering, printing, message patches on clothing, backpacks, binders, or other personal items are strictly prohibited.
Clothing and jewelry shall be free of writing, pictures, or any other insignia which is crude, vulgar, profane or sexually suggestive, or which advocates racial, ethnic, or religious prejudice, or the use of drugs or alcohol.
Also, no ear “gauges” shall be worn at ACE Days.
Tattoos may not be visible.
Bull style nose rings may not be worn. Face and eyebrow piercing jewelry may not be worn.
