Finding a school where your child thrives provides a foundation for a successful future.
At independent schools -- private, nonprofit schools governed by boards of trustees—you can choose a school where the approach to teaching and the philosophy of the school are the best match for your child.
The independent schools that belong to the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) are fully accredited, non-profit schools that are non-discriminatory. Each NAIS independent school is driven by a unique educational mission. They all share a commitment to providing a safe environment in which young people can learn academic skills plus the importance of hard work, leadership, and good citizenship.
At independent schools, you’ll find extraordinary teachers who are experts in the subjects they teach, who love children, and who are passionate about teaching. Small classes mean that teachers are able to develop a full understanding of how each student learns and what interests and motivates each individually. These expert teachers nurture intellectual curiosity, stimulate personal growth, and encourage critical thinking.
