Academic Calendar


For Avenues Studio Hamptons, the regular school year starts in mid-August and concludes in early June. In the fall, we schedule two vacations—a week in early October and a week for Thanksgiving (U.S.). Students also receive a three-week break over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. The second semester begins in January and runs through early June, with a two-week break at the end of March. Students in grades 9-12 participate in a capstone term in May/June. Avenues Studio Hamptons does not observe traditional religious or U.S. federal holidays. These include, but are not limited to, Labor Day, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Columbus Day, Eid, Ramadan, Veterans’ Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Lunar New Year, Passover, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, and the Fourth of July. Students who wish to observe religious holidays may do so, with the prior approval of their advisors or Avenues administrators. However, Avenues Studio Hamptons does include several breaks that are traditional for independent schools: a week off at Thanksgiving (U.S.), three weeks off over Christmas and New Year’s and two weeks off for a spring break.
