Why choose a private school?
- Low student-teacher ratios
- Academic excellence
- Freedom from state standards/school autonomy
- Opportunity to choose a school that aligns with your family’s beliefs, philosophy, and values

Cost: What is the tuition range your family is comfortable with? Is financial aid going to be important to your family? If so, does the school you are interested in offer aid?
Correct fit: Does the mission of this school align with your family’s values?
Admissions criteria: Are you prepared to fulfill all the requirements for the application process?
Each private school in Greater Boston has its own process for determining financial aid packages. If you are interested in a private school but aren’t sure you can afford the cost, we encourage you to inquire with the school directly!
