Select type of school:   


Private schools are schools that do not receive funding from the state. They set their own criteria for admission. Families of students pay tuition or, in some cases, students receive scholarships to attend. The teachers, principal, board of directors (and sometimes the parents and students) choose the curriculum, teaching methodology and enrollment requirements. Private schools are not required to hire teachers licensed by the state.

A significant number of private schools is religious; others are unaffiliated. Another option is a boarding school - a school where students not only study but also reside.
