You’ll know us when you see us! Our bold navy blue and yellow uniforms set Indy STEAM Academy students apart from the crowd. And when we pop on our lab coats, there is no question that our students are the future of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics!
Our uniform consists of yellow polo shirts embroidered with our Indy STEAM crest, a navy blue tie, navy blue bottoms, and a white lab coat also with our Indy STEAM crest. Our uniforms keep our students looking sharp and ready to learn.
At Indy STEAM Academy, both teachers and students wear uniforms to help foster unity, a sense of belonging, and a purpose for learning. There are so many reasons to love our uniforms, but here are just a few of the benefits of wearing uniforms:
School Spirit & Unity
We are proud to be Indianapolis’ first STEAM school for K-5 students and our uniforms give us the chance to show our school pride daily. School uniforms increase our sense of belonging to a great community.
Outside of the building, when Indy STEAM students are out in the community exploring future careers or participating in junior internships, we will be highly visible and commended for our stylish, presentable student population.
Promote Safety & Positive School Culture
Uniforms serve to increase school safety in many ways. By having both teachers and students wear a uniform, we can easily recognize visitors to our campus. When we are off-campus, Indy STEAM students are also easily found in a crowd!
Uniforms nurture a sense of equality among students. We can prevent bullying that may be based on socio-economic class or background when all students have a “level playing field” when it comes to clothes.
When you take clothing choice off the table, you also decrease distractions at school. Fewer distractions make it easier to focus on learning instead of clothing.
Get ready to eliminate wardrobe battles this year! Gone is the question that haunts some parents in the morning: What am I going to wear today? Parents report that mornings are made easier when their child wears a uniform. Our mix and match tops and bottoms provide a bit of variety and choice without making decisions in the morning too tough. And our uniforms are comfortable, with elastics and soft materials in all the places that matter.

Early Start to a Profession
Our uniforms promote a sense of belonging to STEAM professions. Learning to dress for success at an early age makes an easy transition to a professional work environment. Our uniforms support a sense of self-worth and pride in our appearance. And the added element of our lab coats defines our place in the STEAM world—we dress for the role we practice every day—scientists and engineers!
We look forward to seeing our smartly dressed students at Indy STEAM Academy in just a few short weeks. You can find out all the specific details about our dress code policy, along with links to purchase, on our website. If you need assistance in purchasing, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
