Triad Private Schools Directory

Monday, February 28, 2011

By Katie Moosbrugger

There are so many factors to consider when choosing the right private school for your child. Are the academics top-notch? Are the classes a good size? What are the experiences of the teachers? Is the school small enough? Big enough? Is it Christian based? Is the athletic program strong? And the questions can go on and on and on.

Fortunately there are a bunch of great private schools within the Triad to choose from. In an attempt to help you narrow down your choices, we compiled a list of schools in all three major cities of the Triad.  The best part is that we can update this list at any time. So if there is a school we did not include, let me know! Or if the statistics below have changed, email me! Our goal is to keep this list updated as much as possible - with your help, of course.

Thanks to all the schools who have already updated their information below. We hope this list is a good start for you!

My children go to St. John's and we have been overwhelmingly pleased with the school! St. John's offers a "complete education"-- one academically strong, with an amazing arts and music program as well as extra curricular sports teams. It is a school that offers a safe, nurturing environment based on Christian principles where they are respected and celebrated for who they are. St. John's has one of the strongest and most involved PTO's - welcoming new ideas and participation. I would recommend any parent to check out St. John's Lutheran School-- you will find it a welcoming place for your child to learn and grow!
