For your convenience, we have compiled the following list of events and holidays observed by the school to mark on your calendar. Please keep in mind that the annual tuition/monthly tuition installment is based on lessons received for an entire school year, and not the number of classes received each month. This is standard private school policy. Remember that if your child misses a class, he or she may have opportunities to make up that class. Please check with your child’s teacher for the appropriate day and time. Remember that we do not close for Teacher Work days, or Religious Holidays unless noted below.
