The school day begins at 8:00 am with Advisory. The Upper School follows a 7-day rotating schedule, which allows 5 academic periods each day. This keeps each day fresh and new and allows for teachers to work with students at different times of the day in their specific classes. It also prevents students from missing the same class for early outs and appointments should they arise.
