Students are expected to be well-groomed at all times and to wear their uniform during school hours. Wearing the SMA school uniform fosters a sense of belonging to the Academy community.

The SMA uniform, with the exception of shoes, must be purchased from the Tartan Shop at the school. Students have a variety of mix and match options for winter and summer.

Regulation

The regulation uniform may be worn all year. It consists of a blue plaid kilt, white oxford button down collar shirt with short or long sleeves, navy knee socks, navy tights or navy panty hose, and navy or black dress shoes. No canvas shoes, runners, boots or sandals. Shoes must have a closed toe, closed back and a heel height of less than 4 centimeters.

Students may also purchase a regulation sweater, available in cardigan, pullover or sleeveless vest, and a regulation tie.

Students must wear full regulation uniform to all Mass celebrations.

Order Your SMA Uniform

In April 2022, SMA transitioned to online ordering for our uniform. Top Marks, the supplier of our uniform, will handle all uniform needs directly online. This new model allows families to browse and order online 24-7, and have uniform items shipped directly to their home. All orders are to be placed at www.topmarks.ca. Detailed ordering instructions and an SMA specific password were emailed to families in late April. If you require this information to be resent to you, please contact Mrs. Nadine Dannenberg at ndannenberg@smamb.ca or phone 204-478-6048.
