Triad Private Schools Directory

private

By Sarah Blackwell

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 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.  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 us!

We hope this list is a good start for you!
