Spirit Wear


Madison Academy's School Clothing Program is called Spirit Wear

Spiritwear is a school uniform program unlike traditional uniforms.  Spiritwear offers a large selection of clothing for both boys and girls to allow students to express themselves while retaining the benefits of a uniform program.

Numerous studies indicate that a person’s attitude and academic achievement is directly affected by his/her dress and neatness of appearance.  This means academic achievement is on the increase, while social tension decreases.  There is a greater feeling of equality. Student safety has always been a top priority at Madison Academy. Spiritwear programs have improved student safety.  Our Staff is able to glance across a crowd of students and determine immediately if someone doesn’t belong.
