  1. Day school

    A day school—as opposed to a boarding school—is an institution where children are given educational instruction during the day, after which children/teens 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.
