The Value of Independent Schools

  • Independence in the truest sense of the word. Independent schools are governed by a board of trustees, not a public school board. Independent school teachers have the freedom to create educational experiences that meet each child’s needs, without state mandates on curriculum, textbooks, and testing.
     

  • Mission-Driven Education Whether co-ed or single sex, day school or boarding school, each independent school is driven by its own unique philosophy, values, and approach to teaching.
     

  • High Academic Standards Independent schools nurture intellectual curiosity, stimulate personal growth, encourage critical thinking, and promote a lifelong love of learning.
     

  • Small classes that allow for individual attention. Low student-teacher ratios encourage close connections between instructors and students.
