At Rúhíyyih School, we follow a structured academic calendar to ensure a smooth and well-organized learning experience for our students. Our calendar consists of two terms throughout the academic year, each with its own distinctive schedule. Additionally, we observe holidays and holy days, providing opportunities for rest, reflection, and cultural observance. We prioritize maintaining a harmonious balance between academic commitments and personal observances.

Rúhíyyih School's Academic Calendar: A Guide to Key Dates and Events
We encourage all members of our school community to regularly refer to the calendar to stay informed about key dates, events, and holidays. By adhering to the established calendar, we can collectively create a well-structured and inclusive learning environment that fosters academic excellence, spiritual growth, and a strong sense of community.
For further information about our academic calendar or any inquiries related to dates and events, please feel free to contact our administration office. We are dedicated to ensuring clarity and transparency in our scheduling and look forward to a productive and enriching academic year together.
The academic year at Rúhíyyih School is divided into two terms. The first term, from mid-February to mid-June, focuses on academic activities, extracurricular programs, and personal development. Dedicated faculty members guide students in their learning journey, and the term ends with a mid-term vacation. The second term, from mid-June to the end of November, continues academic advancement, skill-building, and community engagement. Students deepen their studies, participate in co-curricular activities, and develop their overall potential. The school communicates any calendar changes in advance and values open communication. Holidays and holy days are observed as school closures, allowing for rest, reflection, and celebration of cultural and religious occasions, fostering an inclusive environment.
"But education is of three kinds: material, human, and spiritual. Material education is concerned with the progress and development of the body, through gaining its sustenance, its material comfort and ease. This education is common to animals and man. Human education signifies civilization and progress—that is to say, government, administration, charitable works, trades, arts and handicrafts, sciences, great inventions and discoveries and elaborate institutions, which are the activities essential to man as distinguished from the animal. Divine education is that of the Kingdom of God: it consists in acquiring divine perfections, and this is true education; for in this state man becomes the focus of divine blessings, the manifestation of the words, “Let Us make man in Our image, and after Our likeness.” This is the goal of the world of humanity."

1st Semester: Mid-February to Mid-June (Up to the Summer Vacation)
During the first semester, students actively engage in academics, extracurriculars, and personal development, guided by our dedicated faculty. The semester culminates with a vacation, providing students with an opportunity to recharge for the second term. Unit tests and class tests offer valuable feedback, fostering academic growth. The first semester spans from February to June, followed by a rejuvenating summer break of approximately 12 days before continuing the educational journey.
2nd Semester: Beginning of July to End of November (Up to the Winter Vacation)
The second term commences after the summer vacation and extends until the end of November, concluding just before the winter vacation. Students continue their academic advancement, skill-building, and community engagement during this period. They delve deeper into their subjects of study, participate in various co-curricular activities, and further develop their holistic potential.
Similar to the first semester, the second semester also includes regular assessments to assess students' progress and understanding. Unit tests and class tests are conducted to evaluate their knowledge and ensure a comprehensive grasp of the subjects. These assessments serve as valuable checkpoints for students to monitor their academic growth and identify areas for improvement.
The second semester provides a continued opportunity for students to expand their intellectual horizons, enhance their critical thinking skills, and actively contribute to the school community. It offers a stimulating learning environment that nurtures creativity, collaboration, and personal growth. As the semester comes to a close, students embark on a well-deserved winter vacation, which follows the final examinations. This break allows them to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate before entering the subsequent academic year.
Important Dates and Changes
While we strive to maintain consistency in our academic calendar, the exact dates for each term may vary slightly from year to year. Any changes or adjustments to the calendar will be communicated well in advance, ensuring that students, parents, and staff are informed and prepared. We value open communication and transparency in keeping everyone updated about important dates and changes.
Holidays and Holy Days
At Rúhíyyih School, we recognize the significance of holidays and holy days. As indicated in the relevant year's Master Calendar, we observe these days as official school closures. This provides opportunities for rest, reflection, and the observance of significant cultural, religious, and national occasions. By honouring diverse traditions and facilitating a harmonious balance between academic commitments and personal observances, we promote an inclusive and respectful environment.
