Please note

  • These dates have been changed since the first version of the Academic Calendar.
  • Day students must follow COVID-19 testing and self-quarantine protocols before returning to campus
  • Boarding students may request to stay in the dorms during Breaks.
  • Between Fall and Winter Breaks, all classes will be online to allow boarding students the option to remain at home or with a designated caregiver, thereby minimizing travel to/from campus and the need for quarantine.
  • It is our intention to resume in-person classes for all students after Winter and Spring Breaks. Should health guidelines and conditions require a staggered return and/or quarantine period(s), we will adjust accordingly.
