Our experienced admissions team shares some things to consider when evaluating prospective Jacksonville private schools for your children.
Culture: It is important to pick a school that is a good cultural match for your family, including whether it is religious-based or secular. It is also critical that the student body is diverse and reflective of our society as a whole.
Values: It is essential that the school’s values mesh with those of your family.
Curriculum: Some curriculums are focused on the future and others are more rooted in the past. Some have a strong interdisciplinary emphasis while others have more traditional silos of learning. It is important to pick a school with the curriculum that best positions your child for success.
Class Size: An optimal student-to-teacher ratio allows your child’s educational needs to be better met.
Facilities: The right school will have the facilities to support your child’s interest in performance arts or sports, such as having a theater and gym.
After School Programs: Many private schools offer extended day programs and afterschool activities, which are important considerations, especially for dual-working parents.
It is also imperative to tour prospective schools in person so that you can get a better sense of what the school would be like on a daily basis.
