The government school calendar year in the Philippines begins in June every year. However, private schools have the exception to deviate from the calendar as regulated by Republic Act No. 7797 entitled An Act to Lengthen the School Calendar from Two Hundred Days to Not More than Two Hundred Twenty Class Days.

Apart from the school holidays, all schools in the Philippines observe national and local holidays.
