Please be informed that SHS-AdC will continue to practice the June-March Academic Calendar for SY 2018-2019.
After careful reflection and deliberation, we have decided that it is not in the best interest of the school community to move the dates. The decision to change academic calendars by tertiary institutions is meant to align colleges and universities with international schedules. This is meant to make exchanges and cross-enrolment between students and faculty more convenient. As we do not have cross-enrollment programs in Basic Education, we do not feel it is necessary to change dates.
Furthermore, expecting students to study in the very warm summer months of April and May will not be conducive to learning. We highly encourage all our students to spend their summers in active outdoor play.
Finally, ALL Jesuit Basic Education Schools throughout the country (e.g. Ateneo de Manila University Grade School and High School Departments, Xavier School Greenhills and Nuvali, Ateneo de Iloilo, etc.) will continue with the June-March calendar.
