School Calendar and Hour of Operation


Global Montessori Academy’s school day is from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Parents may drop their children off as early as 8:00 a.m. and pick up by 3:45 p.m.  To accommodate working parents, our Extended Day program is offered for an additional fee from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. in the morning and from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the afternoon.

Global Montessori Academy’s yearly calendar closely follows Shawnee Mission school district’s calendar.  The calendar is typically released in early spring of each year based on when Shawnee Mission releases their calendar.  Global Montessori Academy’s calendar adheres to the State of Kansas laws and regulations for required classroom instruction time.  As of January 2015, Kansas law states that 1st through 12th grade students shall have at least 186 calendar days of school or 1116 hours of instruction per academic year.  Kansas law also requires at least 465 hours of instruction per year for Kindergarten students.  You may download the school calendar below.
