For academic courses, the Upper School uses a semester approach to the school year:
The first semester runs from September 4 to January 29.
The drop deadline for fall semester courses is October 18.
The drop deadline for year-long courses is November 22.
The second semester runs from Februrary 3 to June 13.
For Physical Education and Athletics, we use a trimester system:
The fall trimester begins on the first day of school and ends the day before Thanksgiving Break.
The winter trimester begins the day we return from Thanksgiving and ends the day before spring break.
The spring trimester begins the day we return from spring break and ends on the last day of school.
