Duxbury School Academic Calendar (2023-2024)
The School offers a variety of academic calendars for students to choose from. These calendars provide an overview of what is expected of students in each grade, as well as important dates and deadlines.
One of the most popular calendars is the traditional school year calendar. This calendar begins in early September and runs through late May. The traditional school year calendar includes three semesters, with each semester consisting of 12 weeks. Each week has two days assigned: one business day and one instructional day.
Many parents find the traditional school year calendar easier to follow because it follows a standard schedule. However, not everyone prefers this type of calendar.

Block schedules divide the school year into four quarters, with each quarter consisting of eight weeks.
