Calendar

Thaden School's academic calendar runs on a trimester rather than a semester system. Twelve-week trimesters allow middle and upper school students to take a greater number of courses in a given year, enabling them to explore more disciplines and subjects.

Academic Calendar and Special Dates

Although the trimester system has not been widely adopted in the region, our academic calendar begins on or near the same date as most public and charter schools in Northwest Arkansas and is aligned with sports seasons, national holidays, and traditional breaks. The Thaden year has two-week winter and spring breaks, as well as celebrations for special occasions such as Louise Thaden Day.
