Northern Discovery Academy thoughtfully limits the number of single days students are let out of school, in order to accommodate our four-day school model, to limit school attendance to nine calendar months, and to encourage a “whole week” rhythm to the school experience.


For this reason, school will be in session for any dates not listed above.  Students, then, will attend school on Columbus Day (in October), Veterans Day (in November), Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (in January), and President’s Day (in February) during each academic school year.
