Students are expected to adhere to the school and gym dress codes. Parental support of these codes is required. We encourage students at NFA to take pride in their appearance. When a child looks and feels good about him or herself, he or she acts and works accordingly.
  • Students are to maintain an appearance of neatness, which includes shirts being tucked in at all times, and slacks and skirts worn correctly at waist level.
  • Neatness and cleanliness in personal attire are part of a child’s education and the responsibility of the parents.
  • If a situation arises where a student will not be in full uniform, parents are expected to communicate with the homeroom teacher. 

Students in grades 1 to 8 are required to wear the uniform and shoes as outlined on the following pages. We work primarily with two vendors:  Flynn & O’Hara Uniform Company in Springhouse (215-793-9436) and Flocco’s Shoes in Conshohocken (610-828-5544). Note: For students traveling between buildings/campuses throughout the school day non-NFA sweatshirts and jackets are to be removed before the start of class.

A regulation school uniform is not required for children in Pre-Primary program, Kindergarten, and Montessori preschool. These children wear sneakers or shoes that tie or velcro so that they are conducive to outdoor play.

The NFA Parents Association offers gently used uniforms via “The Clothesline.” Please check the monthly calendar on the website for “The Clothesline” schedule.
