What is a private school?

A private school is a school that does not receive public funding.

Families are required to pay tuition, unless the family is eligible for a voucher or other scholarship.

Some private schools are faith-based, and others may have a particular academic focus.

Private schools often have different academic classes in addition or instead of the classes offered at traditional public schools. If you choose a faith-based private school, your child may take required faith-based classes.

Students enrolled in non-public schools do not have the same right to receive special education services.

Private schools might not offer a breakfast or lunch program.
