Parents with the Total Package are free toschedule their children’s vacation days as they see fit. Of course, Casa School offers the legally mandated minimum of 940 education hours to all students.

Students with the Basic Package attend school 5 days a week from 08.00 to 14.00 and follow the Casa school holiday schedule (see schedule at the bottom of this page). It is in principle not possible for students to have free days outside of the normal school holiday schedule. Exceptions to this ruling can be found at

Total Package students are free to come in any time between 08.00 to 09.00, have at least 2 “long days” and are free to arrange their holiday schedules as they see fit (bearing in mind the legally mandated minimum of 940 hours of school). More information regarding this and other handy tips can be found on page 19 of the Casa School Handbook

Every year, Casa School sets up the School Holiday Schedule. These free days apply to all students.

  • The week between Christmas and New Year’s Day
  • The standard yearly holidays: Easter Monday, Ascension Day and the day after, the Monday after Pentecost, and the 25th and 26th of December
  • Special Dutch national holidays: King’s Day and Liberation Day (once every five years, next free day is in 2015)
  • Study days for all Casa staff. Once these are known, they will be added to the agenda.
