Edmonton Catholic Schools has three schools offering a year-round schooling calendar. These schools balance their instructional days into four terms with vacation breaks between each of the terms.
These three schools offer a five-week summer break with students returning to school in early August – a two-week Christmas break that is the same as the rest of the schools – and a two-week Spring Break in March. There are also two other days in the school year that are taken as extra-long long weekends – these vary year to year.
The number of instructional days for students is exactly the same for both the year-round calendar and the traditional calendar.
Year-round schooling gives parents in Edmonton Catholic Schools another choice for their children’s education and reduces the concern of learning loss over a the summer break. For more information about Year-Round Schooling please contact one of the schools listed below.
