Philippines School Holidays 2017 and 2018

This page contains a calendar of all 2017 and 2018 school holidays and term dates for the Philippines. These dates are unlikely to be modified by the Department of Education (DepEd). However, please check back regularly for any updates that may occur.

The annual school calendar – which contains the dates of government school terms and school holidays in the Philippines – is determined by the Department of Education.

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.
