Hours & Schedules

Hours & Schedules


Northwest Academy’s academic day runs from 8:30am to 3:50pm, Monday through Friday. Arts After Hours elective classes generally run from 4:00 to 5:45pm.


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 our families a terrific block of time for travel.

Northwest Academy is not always listed on TV school closures, and does not necessarily follow the same guidelines as Portland Public Schools.
