Students should wear professional business attire. Tops or blouses should cover shoulders and modestly cover chest. Please do not wear low-cut blouses or shirts. If you choose to wear a dress, it must meet dress code criteria. Helias Catholic will provide a few blazers of various sizes for students to wear if they would like to add to their professional dress. 


Students should dress in professional business attire such as a sport coat with a tie. Helias Catholic will provide several extra sport coats in various sizes if a student needs to borrow a jacket. Please do not feel obligated to purchase a sport coat or suit. Please be clean-shaven with neatly groomed hair. If students are not clean-shaven, they will be asked to shave prior to their photos.
