School Calendar

William Edge Institute operates year-round. The Institute conducts enrollments and classes throughout the year. Schedules may vary by course. The Institute observes the following holidays and school closings:

New Year’s Day, the week of the 4th of July, Thanksgiving (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) Christmas (2 weeks)

William Edge Institute varies from the published calendar only in unusual or extenuating circumstances.

This constitutes a 30-hour week, full-time schedule, which all students are expected to adhere to. Certain conditions in some courses may facilitate less than full-time attendance, but they must be arranged with the Administration Office prior to starting classes.

Unexpected closures due to extenuating circumstances, like extreme weather conditions, are not preventable. However, the administration will decide and notify students in attendance if impending weather warrants closing the next day.

Tuition, fees and policies of the Institute are subject to change. Tuition revisions will not apply to currently enrolled students. Fees, product pricing and policy revision will become effective two weeks after written notice to students, staff and administration.
