Additionally, the following will not be tolerated and are grounds for immediate dismissal from the dance without refund and possible further disciplinary action:

FORMAL ATTIRE REQUIRED

Dress code details on this page below.

Prom is a formal and special night for Veritas students to enjoy each other’s company in an unique setting.  Our school is committed to the development of individual personality and character through the virtues, quirks and traits you bring to the community.  We hope to highlight these personal qualities and to maintain the integrity and formality of the night by implementing a simple dress code along with multiple opportunities to ask questions about the guidelines well in advance of the dance.

If you have questions concerning your planned attire, it is your responsibility to seek prior approval from the school. If you are bringing a date from another school, please help prevent their embarrassment by making him or her aware of the policy.

Students and their guests who are non-compliant with the dress code will not be admitted or will be escorted from the dance.  No refunds for dress code infractions.  Administrative judgment at the event will be final.

For more information and assistance, please join us at the announced times.  As always, you may email pictures of possible attire for approval to the appropriate faculty: Sifert/Bruns/Weiland.
