There are 175 days provided for the educational program in the 2023-2024 academic year. The School is closed in observance of Diwali and Lunar New Year during calendar years when the holidays fall on a weekday; each is celebrated on a weekend in 2023-2024. Note that the first three snow days in the 2023-2024 school year are anticipated to be true snow days, with no expectation that students will engage with schoolwork on those days.
