Dates and Times

 

The Kelsey Arabic Program consists of four levels, each including 60-65 days of class. A student may begin the first semester in either May, August, or January.

Spring and Fall Term classes are held Monday through Thursday from 8.15 am to 1:00 pm. On Saturdays, there will be enhancement exercises and opportunities to make up absences for an additional fee.

Intensive Summer Terms include 45 days of class approximately. Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 8.15 am to 2:00 pm.

The tentative schedule for 2022 -2023 is as follows:

*No Classes. Sometimes the government changes holidays without advance notice. In general, we follow the decisions of area schools so that our days off correspond with the children of our students and teachers.

** All students are expected to come to the school some time between 8:15 and 12:30 during their registration day. Please send a friend or email the school if you cannot be present.
