Richmond Private School Guide 

With all of the great schools in the area, it’s important to find the one that’s the best fit for your child. In addition to his or her academic needs and a school’s ability to meet them, it’s also good to consider the following factors when selecting a school for your child:

Location/CommuteLearning Environment School PhilosophyArea(s) of Special Emphasis Size/Composition of Student BodyTuition/Financial Assistance Programs

Many of today’s independent schools can offer your child a wealth of learning opportunities. From small student/teacher ratios and specialized programs, to religious instruction and same-sex classrooms, these academic centers are as unique and promising as the children who attend them.
