School Year Calendar

Our school year is based on a semester system.  While some core academic classes last the entire school year, students’ schedules generally change each term. This allows for a greater variety of classes, and for students to get a fresh start two times each year, while also providing continuity in core subjects like English, Math, Science, and Spanish.   It also aligns with Common Ground’s commitment to prepare every student for college, since most colleges use a similar semester system.

When the weather is inclement, Common Ground follows New Haven Public Schools’ delay and cancellation schedule.
