The Walden Project school day is typically from 9:30 - 3:30. Walden students will meet for the same hours and days as mandated by the State and District with regards to attendance.  However, to accommodate this, Walden’s calendar will include trips that meet on days that are not listed on the traditional calendar.  For example, Walden students will meet for several days before the academic calendar of mainstream students.  These days will be compensated at appropriate times during the year to ensure no academic disruption.  Walden staff will provide parents/guardians the needed information so they may plan accordingly.  Schedule for vacations will mirror that of the Naples Central School District Calendar. The Walden Project will also follow the Naples Central School District's decisions for school closings due to severe weather.
