It’s back to school today for some Calgary students. The 2016-17 school year kicks off today at six Calgary Catholic schools which offer year-round schooling.
It’s an alternative that’s growing in popularity. The school year is balanced into four equal terms, with a shorter summer vacation, a two week holiday in October and an extra week of holidays at both Christmas and Easter.
Students in the public system who are in the year-round program begin classes on August 16th.
