Why Choose a Private School?
The education of your child is of the utmost importance, and the decisions we make as parents in their early years can often impact the rest of their lives. There are many outstanding benefits to sending your child to an independent school.
Higher test scores.
The National Center for Education Statistics periodically administers the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to test the knowledge and skills of the nation's students in grades Four, Eight, and Twelve. Students in private schools consistently score well above the national average.1

Higher satisfaction levels.
According to a study released in April 2010 by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), 79% of parents with students in private schools report being “very satisfied” with their schools, compared to 52% of students in assigned public schools.3
