Professional, color-coded school uniforms help students focus on what matters most at school—learning!

We believe that school uniforms have a beneficial impact on students’ self-esteem, attendance, graduation rates, and discipline. Uniforms eliminate unnecessary distractions (such as who has the coolest tennis shoes), and ensure students’ focus remains on academic success. Uniforms are an important part of the IDEA culture.

Click on your scholars’ region and download the uniform guide to learn more about what your scholar should be wearing to school and where to purchase it:

IDEA scholars who are engaged in distance learning and attending school online should wear their branded IDEA polo shirt Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, scholars may wear a t-shirt with the college of their choice.
