The gift of education is one of the most important things any child can be given. Education is all about preparing your child or children to become healthy, happy adults that contribute to society in a positive way. Parents also want to see their kids succeed financially and think a private school is the way to achieve that. But what if you want to send your kids to private school, and money is a concern?
Some parents drop thousands of dollars a year on private education for their children. In fact, the average private school tuition in the U.S. for a non-sectarian elementary school is $15,945 a year, and $27,302 a year for secondary school. Catholic elementary school will run you on average $4,944 for elementary school and $7,826 for secondary school; other religious schools average $6,576 for elementary and $10,493 for secondary.
According to the Council for American Private Education (CAPE), there’s a number of reasons some parents are choosing the pricier option. These include high academic achievement (the National Center for Education Statistics has found that private school students in grades 4, 8 and 12 score well above the national average in reading, math, science and writing), a safe environment, high parent and teacher satisfaction levels, a focus on civics, community service and a values-based setting.
