What are the dress codes at Peddie and Lawrenceville in NJ? I've heard that lawrenceville is more formal, and at peddie, you can only wear a school sweatshirt. I tried to research online but couldn't find a recent, specific dress code.

    From the Lawrenceville website link to their student handbook:

    The Dress Code
    The dress code at Lawrenceville is not formal, but students are expected to dress in a way that respects the standards and academic purposes of the School. Clothing must be neat, clean, and in good repair. Footwear is required at all times. The School may make exceptions to the dress code in accordance with sincerely held religious tenets. Students who are out of dress code shall be sent back to their House to change and will receive a tardy mark for their class or meeting attendance.
    Class Dress
    Respect for the collective academic endeavor and respect for all community members and the School includes attending to appearance. During hours when classes are in session, including lunch and School meetings, the following dress code applies:
    • Shirts/Tops: collared shirts, tailored blouses, turtlenecks, or sweaters. Sweatshirts, even with hoods, do not fulfill dress code requirements and may only be worn over an approved top.
    • Pants: khakis, denim jeans, trousers (leggings or jeggings may only be worn under long tops or skirts or dresses).
    • Shorts:tailoredwithpocketsandmustbefinger- tip length or longer.
    • Dresses and skirts: tailored and must be finger- tip length or longer.
    • Sleeveless blouses are acceptable provided the straps are one inch or wider.
    Team members may wear parts of their game uniforms to classes on game days with the approval of their coaches.
    Formal Dress
    On certain occasions, more formal attire is required. Choice of formal dress should be sincere and consistent with the significance of the occasion. For Chapel and other formal School functions, the following Formal Dress applies:

    From an article in the Peddie news from Feb 2017:

    Peddie’s administration of collared shirts, khakis, and dress pants for males and blouses, skirts or dress pants for females is significantly more lenient and provides room for “experimentation” by students.
