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/Commute • Learning Environment School Philosophy • Area(s) of Special Emphasis Size/Composition of Student Body • Tuition/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.
