Dress Code

Wyoming Seminary has adopted the "Sem Attire" dress code for preschool through eighth-grade students. This is not a single uniform, but rather a selection of clothing pieces that a committee has chosen through the Lands' End catalog. 

To order clothing online, please go to the Lands' End Wyoming Seminary approved attire page. You may also call Lands' End directly at 1-800-469-2222. For questions about the dress code or the Parents Association's "Sem Closet" (a collection of gently used Sem attire for purchase), call 570-718-6601.


Toddlers are not expected to wear attire with the Wyoming Seminary logo but we ask that they adhere to our uniform colors of navy, white, maize yellow and khaki. 

Sem Attire is required every day for primary students.

Boys and Girls:
   Lands’ End polos or oxfords with the Wyoming Seminary logo in white, blue or yellow
