2022 – 2023 Class Dates

During 2020-2021, OTA is offering three trimesters that last 10 weeks each.

With that said, some classes go more than one trimester.  Please make sure you look at the class description as well as on the class syllabi to the length of the class:  10 week, 20 weeks or 30 weeks.  Additionally, please note what semester it will be offered:  Fall, Winter and Spring.   If you have any questions regarding class dates, please ask us at [email protected]  Please make note of these details.

Open Tent Academy attempts to provide all major holidays for the three primary religions off.   This year the Jewish High Holidays fall out in mid-September; therefore, you will notice a fall break (vacation for all) in September.  Because of the dates, teachers will provide the students with an assignment and/or project during this time off.   Finally, students do not have classes during the Thanksgiving, Christmas,  New Year, Easter/Passover holidays to make sure all our students, who celebrate those days, have time off.

If you are taking Jonathan or Eva’s IEW classes, as always, these classes run 14 class meetings, every other week (except for holidays), A week or B week.  We begin in late August.  Please note at the BOTTOM of this page the dates for IEW Writing classes.

Finally, all sessions have a “make-up date” if a class needs to be cancelled by the instructor. Instructors will inform parents if this “make-up” date will be used.

As you can imagine, creating a schedule to guarantee that those who celebrate a major religious holiday has a day off is quite a task.  We work very hard at this.  If I have overlooked something, please email me personally at [email protected] so I can include it in future schedules.
