We know for sure that private education is an asset to our students. We see it first hand every day. Our students are engaged, more successful in and out of the classroom, and have bright futures in high school and beyond. But the benefits of private schools don't end there. Private schools are known for serving a student’s whole family in ways that public schools are unable to due to their structure as well as the sheer size of their organization.
1. Community And Relationship Building
When your child attends a large public school they’re more likely to end up being a number. Not because their teachers don’t care about their success, but because they’re only one of the hundreds of kids they need to care for. But small classrooms provide more than the simple benefits of the low student to teacher ratio. They provide your child access to a community where they are known and where you, their parents are known. And, they create an environment where teachers are happy to be. Healthy relationship building is a skill that’s learned over time and with practice, and access to a strong community is a helpful resource used to develop that skill.
2. Establishing A System Of Accountability
A side benefit to a tight-knit community is accountability. You know the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child,” well it also takes a village to teach a child how to behave and then hold that child accountable to those expectations. In private education, you know your child’s teachers, the administrators at their school, and even the parents of other children on the playground. And each of those adult figures becomes a point of accountability in their day, and ultimately an asset to your family.
3. Better Education Leads To Stronger Futures
Private education as a whole is excellent at developing bright, focused, and engaged students. Thanks to the quality of our instruction and our small classroom approach, students in private education tend to excel academically compared to their peers. And what we all know is that those students who excel academically at a young age tend to continue excelling in high school and beyond. So how does that help you? Well, among many other benefits, these bright students are more likely to receive college scholarships and are more attractive to hiring managers. The investment you make in your children’s education today gives them the tools they need to fly the nest when they’re older.
Raising good, successful children is a full time job. But, it’s a job that’s made easier with support. Above all, private schools benefit families because we try to. Supporting parents and families is integral to our mission and when paired with our quality education it makes a difference for families. Are you ready to join our community?
