Day school

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A day school[1]—as opposed to a boarding school—is an educational institution where children[2][3] (or high school age adolescents)[4] are given instruction during the day, after which the students return to their homes. The term can also be used to emphasize the length of full-day programs as opposed to after-school programs, as in Jewish day school.

The term day school is also increasingly used for a one-off series of lectures or classes, taking place on a single day, usually on a particular topic and usually directed at adult learners with little time to spare.[5]
