School Year Calendar

Markao School Year Calendar

Markao’s school year calendar goes from September through June, and includes 36 weeks of contact learning, with breaks in between.

Our project-based learning will be offered in blocks, segmented through the school year to best address the topic we’re studying at the time. You’ll see in the schedule below that we have 11 weeks of learning maximum before we have a break. That 11 weeks might be divided into two 4-week blocks and a 3-week block, or perhaps a 6-week block and a 5-week block, depending on the projects we’re working on and the time needed to best address them.

We understand that there are holidays in various countries that may fall on days that we are in class. All classes are recorded and placed in the learning area if you happen to be away for that holiday.  Most classes should be able to be attended live though.
