Updated by Katie Moosbrugger

If you are considering a private school for your child, there are many factors to consider. 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? Does it offer religious education? Is the athletic program strong? And the questions can go on and on and on.

Fortunately there are numerous great private schools within the Triad. In an attempt to help you narrow down your choices and find a good match for your family, we compiled a list of schools in all three major cities of the Triad recommended by our readers.  The best part is that we can update this list at any time. So if there is a school we did not include, let us know! Or if the statistics below have changed, email me at Katie@TriadMomsOnMain.com!

We hope this list is a good start for you. Find out more about each school by visiting their website, and be sure to check our TMoM event calendar for upcoming Open Houses.
