Presenting Sylmar Charter High School's Tentative 2018-2019 Academic Calendar and Bell Schedule!

Thomas Edison was spot on: "Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.” In light of Edison's wise words, and in a concerted effort to organize our school for success, we have developed a tentative 2018-2019 academic calendar. This calendar was fully approved by the School Leadership Council on 05.15.2018. It is certainly not immutable, since it is always subject to revisions and modifications, but it will serve as a guide as you navigate through your planning sessions. To access the calendar, please click on the "Academic Calendar-At-A-Glance" button on our home page. To access a general overview, our early release dates, and our bell schedule, simply click on the headline.
