School Hours and Extra-Curricular Activities

School Hours

What are the hours for Sparhawk Academy?

Parents can drop off boys at the school as early as 7:45 am. The normal school day begins with a homeroom period at 8:15 am. At this time we take care of administrative details, take attendance, make announcements, and organize the day. Each grade has its own homeroom and homeroom teacher. The first class of the day begins at 8:30 am. The school day ends at the end of ninth period at 3:15 pm. There are seven 45-minute class periods throughout the day, plus daily Mass, a 45-minute lunch break, and a 15-minute break in the afternoon.

Are there extracurricular activities after school?

Yes, boys will have the opportunity to participate in after school sports, clubs, and hobbies organized by the school. The actual activities are still to be determined as we learn what kinds of things the boys are interested in doing. Boys will also be able to organize their own games and activities at the school until 4:00 pm each day (except for early dismissal days).

Is there a charge for early drop-off or late pick-up?

There is no charge for dropping boys off beginning at 7:45 am or picking boys up until 4:00 pm. Arrangements for outside of these time windows should be made well in advance by contacting the school at 617-727-4595.
