TPS Calendar
The 2016-17 Academic Year is listed below 2017-18 Academic Year. Note that TPS is shifting its schedule, and the 2017-18 Academic Year starts and ends several weeks earlier than in prior years. If you are looking for the Trips and Events Calendar, please go here.

Since many of our classes meet only once per week, The Potter's School cannot observe all U.S. federal holidays, because they usually fall on Mondays. Observing all U.S. federal holidays over the course of a year would result in a significant disadvantage for those courses scheduled with Monday sessions. We regret not being able to more fully demonstrate due respect for the purpose of these holidays.

Notes
Note 1: Overseas Registration is open to families who will live outside the four continental U.S. time zones for a significant part of the school year.
Note 2: Multiple Courses Registration is open for all courses to families who commit to paying at least $2000 in tuition for courses during the regular school year (September through May), with the understanding that dropping below this commitment later may also require giving up high-demand seats to other waiting students. Summer courses may be enrolled at this time, but they do not count toward the $2000.
Note 3: Returning Family Registration is open to families completing one or more courses during the school year immediately prior to the registration year.
Note 4: Some classes have optional open houses for orientation during the previous week. These are typically held at the same time and in the same room as when the class will actually be held, or an alternate time and room will be provided.
Note 5: While there will be no classes after this date, some courses may administer final exams that are due the following week.
