Did You Know?

ACCOUNTABILITY  Independent schools are accountable to their boards of trustees, the families they serve, and the accrediting agencies that evaluate them.  Every independent school undergoes a thorough evaluative process by a recognized accrediting body.  In addition, independent schools comply with all appropriate federal, state, and local laws and regulations, including those that govern 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.

AFFORDABILITY  Independent schools work with families to help them meet the costs associated with their child’s education.  Financial aid often includes grants, scholarships, or loans from schools and a variety of other sources.

ACCESS  Independent schools are home to students and families of all types of backgrounds and nationalities.  They are committed to promoting a diverse school community and a high-quality education for all.

GOOD NEIGHBORS  Independent schools have a strong history of reaching out to their communities, through student and faculty involvement in neighborhood, town, or city initiatives; welcoming neighbors at school-wide events; and offering use of school facilities.

PARTNERS  Independent schools across the country partner with their public school colleagues in a variety of ways: teacher training and exchanges; sharing governance and site-based management learnings; and creating curricular materials, among many others.
