2020-21 Schedule Notes

Girls and boys study separately in all Winer Term classes. A newly designed class schedule follows a hybrid model with in-person and online classes. SAB has implemented protocols in accordance with New York State Department of Health guidance for classes with aerobic activity, class size has been drastically decreased in order to socially distance each student by 12 feet during all in-person classes.  This is reflected in multiple sections for each class level.

All Preparatory and Children’s Division classes, plus the Intermediate girls B1 class, will rotate between two weeks of in person classes followed by two weeks of online classes throughout the school year.  All other intermediate and advanced day students will take all classes in person. Intermediate and advanced resident students will take class via Zoom until in-person classes begin for their cohort.
