All school breaks begin at the end of the school day (3:00 p.m.) or when your final exams are completed and rooms are checked by dorm monitors. If you have to leave early or if you return from break late there will be a $25 fee per school day absent. These days absent will count towards the allotted 10 days per semester.
|Thanksgiving Break||November 27 – December 3|
|Christmas Break||December 21 – January 6|

School Break Policies
Our Purpose: It is our responsibility and our purpose to ensure your safety and spiritual well-being on breaks as much as possible. So, we reserve the right to deny permission if we think that the environment is not in the best interest of the student. Each student must have written permission submitted to the Dean of Students one week prior to the beginning of vacations.
Guidelines for Break Permissions:
- The person or family that you are planning to stay with must be at least 25 years old. However, it is preferred that you stay with a family unit if at all possible.
- All permissions must be submitted to the Dean of Students at least one week prior to break. Any late submissions will be denied and you will have to stay on campus for break.
- If you need to stay for break after attempting to find somewhere to go, there will not be a charge, with the exception of Christmas Break. The dorm will be closed on Christmas Break and if you have to stay on campus, it will be $25 a day.
