Students at Founders Classical Academy of Dallas wear uniforms to eliminate distractions, level the playing field, and remind ourselves of the importance of our academic work. Students should dress and groom themselves in a manner which is traditional, modest, and not disruptive of the school’s intellectual life.

Students must be in uniform to attend classes. Students not found to be in uniform compliance will be documented and referred to the office. For repeated minor, non-distracting uniform issues, students may lose privileges such as recess. Major uniform violations may be sent to the office and to call a parent or guardian to bring them acceptable attire. If acceptable attire is not brought to the school, students will be sent home. These absences will not be excused.

Academy Crest

Our school crest artistically represents the core principles and ideas Founders professes. Placed on a gold shield, the symbol of nobility, character, and honor, is a white stone tower. The tower is supported by two base stones representing wonder and imagination. There are thirteen stones in the body of the tower, each representing a different grade and core virtue, kindergarten through twelfth grade. At the top of the tower are five stones, with three stones in the middle of the tower representing the good, the beautiful, and the true, and the end stones representing civic virtue and classical education. The tower sits on a field of dark green, representing life, innocence, and hope. Behind the tower is a dark blue sky with seven stars representing the world of knowledge and wisdom and the seven liberal arts— logic, grammar, and rhetoric-the trivium, and astronomy, music, arithmetic, and geometry,-the quadrivium.
