Private school information

Enrollment

Private schools have an application process and may choose to accept or deny students who apply.

Often students will need to fill out an application, write an essay (depending on age), provide reference letters, and complete an interview.

Requirements

Private schools may set academic or behavioral requirements in order to attend.

Deadline

Private schools usually begin enrolling in the late winter and early spring before the next fall’s school year.

Transportation

The school district you live in must provide transportation for students in grades K-8 who live farther than 2 miles from they school they want to attend. Bus stops can be located up to 1/2 mile from the student’s home.

You may need to register your child with the district you live in to receive transportation to your chosen private school.

The school district you live in is not required to bus a student a distance of more than 30 minutes of driving time.

If the school district you live in decides they cannot provide transportation, they may offer to pay parents instead.

Schools only must transport students in grades 9-12 if they provide that service for their own students.
