Balanced Year Calendar

Williamsburg Christian Academy joined hundreds of forward-looking schools by adopting a balanced year calendar starting in 2021. Our students start school in roughly mid-July, then have 2-3 weeks off after the completion of each academic quarter- in early October, during Christmas and New Years, and in mid-March. The school year closes then prior to the Memorial Day weekend. 

A Balanced Year Calendar represents consistent and connected learning throughout the school year. The goal of a balanced year calendar is to reduce the instructional downtime of the 12-week summer vacation. This downtime has been linked to academic regression typically called summer learning loss or summer slide. Through use of a balanced calendar approach, we seek to provide a full year of academic instruction through a more evenly distributed learning cycle resulting in diminished learning loss and more consistent learning gain.
