What is a Private School?
An independent private school is private in its governance and finances. Also referred to as non-government, private, independently funded, or private schools, they are operated by private companies that are not government regulated. The difference between a public and a private school lies in the governance of the school.
To qualify for a private school you must prove a need for special education and the child will be enrolled in a school where they have the opportunity to learn the subject. Private schools have selection criteria that is made by their board of directors who are members of an organization such as the American Board of Private School. They meet these criteria for admission that must include: the need for special education, the ability of the child to learn, financial need, and academic achievements.
As the child makes progress toward graduation from the private school they will be able to earn their GED. In some states students who attend private schools will be required to have taken additional math courses or foreign language courses if their scores are below a certain point. This is because the educational system in many states is designed to provide low-income students with the highest quality education possible. In some states, a student may have to pass all state tests to graduate from a private school.
Private schools are open to any child and there is no age limit to enroll. If your child has a disability or is going to college there may be financial assistance for that purpose. Private schools also have the advantage of being able to work with local community colleges and vocational schools that are often times free or have very low tuition rates.

The curriculum will also consist of social studies, mathematics, art, science, foreign languages, and other areas that are designed to provide children with the best possible education possible. Private schools are also able to participate in state and federal programs for the purpose of improving the lives of children.
