Uniforms at Great Hearts Christos

happy boyAt Great Hearts, the uniform serves to unify our students as one community of learners, irrespective of our diverse backgrounds. The uniform also signifies to the larger community our common purpose and identity as schools in pursuit of the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. Finally, the uniform frees our students to pursue their intellectual and moral development as individuals, without the distractions of fads and fashion.


True individuality is formed in the heart and mind, in service to the Lord, not in appearances.

Christos has a primary objective of developing a “community of learners,” dedicated to the highest standards of academics and deportment. As such, a distinctive uniform is a unifying factor within the school community. It is also a visible signature of Christos to the larger community, an indicator of unity and pride of purpose. This is one of the most important functions of a uniform: it identifies its wearer as part of a distinctive group with a distinctive purpose. It is a reminder to its wearer of that purpose and of one’s responsibility to that group.”
