Academic Calendar

Since many of our classes meet only once per week, The Potter’s School cannot observe all U.S. federal holidays, because they usually fall on Mondays. Observing all U.S. federal holidays over the course of a year would result in a significant disadvantage for those courses scheduled with Monday sessions. We regret not being able to more fully demonstrate due respect for the purpose of these holidays.
