Northwest Academy’s academic day runs from 8:30 am to 3:50 pm, Monday through Friday.
Arts After Hours elective classes generally run from 4:00 to 5:30 pm.


Northwest Academy’s calendar is designed to encourage educational excellence. Rather than disrupt class with many days off, the calendar features full five-day weeks so that students and teachers can get into the rhythm of learning. A highlight of the calendar is Northwest Academy’s two-week Spring Break, which gives our students a chance to recharge their batteries and spend time with their families.
