Partnering With Schools
We build strong relationships between our schools and local owners, and between our national operations and our apparel suppliers. Let us play the lead role in developing, managing, or expanding an optimized uniform program for your school.
Our goals include:
- Reducing the time administrators spend on enforcement and discipline
- Keeping parents happy with our superior retail service
- Giving students a uniform they are proud to wear
Educational Outfitters gives back a percentage of every dollar earned from our partner schools. This way, we can directly contribute to much-needed academic resources, technology, facilities, playgrounds, and student scholarships every year. We also work with schools to create other exciting fundraising opportunities with items like custom embroidered shirts and outerwear, screen printed T-shirts, tackle twill lettered spirit wear, and custom logo promotional products.
Our franchise owners are major contributors, both in their local communities and beyond. In addition to donating financially to their partner schools, they donate quality clothing to Catholic Charities and other non-profit or faith-based organizations, serve on Chambers of Commerce, coach youth teams, serve in churches and ministries, and volunteer in schools.
The desire to give and serve is an important part of who we are, and is woven throughout everything we do as a local and national business.
Growing Our Giving
As Educational Outfitters pioneered a new level of partnership with schools and customer service for families, our hope is to also pioneer a new level of giving and community service in our industry, both domestically and globally. As we grow our business, we are committed to growing our giving. We want to partner with our schools, families, and suppliers, and do more together than we can do on our own.
Our company purpose is to seek, serve, and honor God as a business, and to have a multiplying impact on the lives our company touches. These lives are found in our local neighborhoods, in our domestic suppliers’ manufacturing and fulfillment facilities, in the developing world communities of our importing vendors, and through the charitable organizations we support.
Do you have the desire to creatively give and serve with us? We want to hear from you! Contact us, and let’s explore how to make a difference together.
The Educational Outfitters Adoption Fund
There are over 145 million orphans in the world today. Each year, many thousands are adopted and find families, but too many more are passed over because they have special needs. Placing a child with special needs into a forever family is much harder than placing a healthy child. The Educational Outfitters Adoption Fund seeks to remedy this problem.

Continuing or Updating Your Established School Uniform Policy
If your school is looking to continue its established uniform program, we can match it. We can also work with you to enhance, update, or expand your approved dress code. We have done this successfully and seamlessly with hundreds of schools across the country. And beyond a core uniform program, we can provide team wear, gym wear, fleeces and jackets, spirit wear, and booster items – all sporting your esteemed school name and logo. Find a retail location near you, and discover the possibilities!
Developing a New School Uniform Program
When developing a new uniform program, you need a trusted expert to help along the way. Not a single school that introduces a new uniform program ever abandons it. It is proven that school uniforms have a positive, transformative impact on student attitudes and the academic environment.
We have worked with numerous schools to accomplish their missions by helping establish a uniform policy that:
- Eliminates peer pressure and competition
- Creates a safe, focused academic atmosphere
- Fosters unity among diverse student populations
- Increases school spirit
- Promotes a school in its community
- Bolsters a student’s true identity so they feel great about themselves
- Eliminates morning hassles and delays for students and parents
- Saves families money
- Contributes to school revenues
Educational Outfitters has a deep understanding of school uniform program development. It requires the excellent planning, communication, and logistics management best provided by a local owner and member of your community. You also need champions within the school’s administration and parent body. Educational Outfitters is the committed uniform provider that will successfully see you through this process.
Let us play a lead role in winning over your teachers, parents, and students. It won’t be hard to prove the transformative benefits of school uniforms. Your nearest Educational Outfitters franchise owner can show you how!
