2016 School Guide

Each year, thousands of parents and students begin their hunt for the perfect school. Filling out application after application, setting up interviews and making multiple visits to schools can be a daunting task. Where will my child excel academically, grow personally and truly enjoy learning?

Whether you’re seeking a school for a specific teaching methodology or prefer that your child learn in a religious environment at a school that shares your family’s vision, the search can seem daunting. Things can get especially tricky if you are enrolling more than one child into private school or college—one size doesn’t fit all, and it’s difficult to find just the right match. Extensive research is often required, and critical questions will arise regarding tuition costs, test assessments, personal interviews and the application process, among others. When it comes down to it, choosing a school for your child is no easy task, to say the least.

On the following pages, you will find a comprehensive list of private schools, colleges and graduate programs in the area. From fine arts academies and faith-based schools, to Montessori academies and schools focused on accelerated learning for the gifted and talented, the 2016 School Guide gives parents an in-depth look at each school, including student-to-teacher ratio, cost of tuition and enrollment.

We hope you will find this quick reference to the area’s schools and colleges helpful as you explore the possibilities of your child’s education.
