School Boards approve 2024-2025 School Year Calendar


The Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon (CSC Nouvelon) and Conseil scolaire du Grand Nord have approved the School Year Calendar for 2024-2025.

The two school boards have worked together to produce a common calendar for many years, facilitating the co-ordination of services such as student transportation. Each board adopted the calendar following its own consultation process. The calendar will now be submitted to the Ontario Ministry of Education for final approval.

The 2024-2025 School Year Calendar will be identical for all French-language public and Catholic schools in the Algoma District including Blind River, Chapleau, Dubreuilville, Elliot Lake, Hornepayne, Sault Ste. Marie, Spanish and Wawa.

The 2024-2025 school year for students will begin on Wednesday, September 4, 2024, following the Labour Day weekend. There will be no early dismissal.

In addition to the first day of school, the School Year Calendar includes the dates for the Christmas Break, the March Break, statutory holidays, secondary school examination days and professional activity days in 2024-2025.
