Private School FAQs

  • What is the difference between private school and public school?

    Public schools are dependent on local, state, and federal funds. Private institutions, however, are funded by students’ tuition to provide them with more academic resources and opportunities alongside an enriching curriculum.

  • What are the benefits of a private school?

    Oftentimes, private school teachers and counselors have smaller caseloads to provide students with individualized attention and support that aids overall academic achievement. Additionally, private schools offer more academic, tutoring, and extracurricular activities for students to shine and thrive.

  • What is the difference between a private school and a charter school?

    Charter schools are public schools that are independent of their respective school districts. This means that charter schools are publicly funded, but operate autonomously to meet state and federal guidelines.

  • What is the difference between private and independent schools?

    According to the National Association of Independent Schools, “independent schools are non-profit private schools that are independent in philosophy: each is driven by a unique mission.” Independent schools are governed by a board of trustees and do not receive public funding, but they are accredited by the state. Not all private schools are independent. For example, a Catholic school run by a single church is private but not independent because it is run by a single entity.

  • What is the difference between private and boarding schools?

    To put it simply, students in boarding schools live on campus, but private school students live at home.

  • What are the benefits of a private school?

    The average cost of K-12 private schools in the United States is $12,250. To view how Laurel Springs private school tuition compares, visit our tuition page.
