Private Schools

Hop in a car, and it won’t take long to pass a quality private school or five, but picking the best one for your children takes a bit more effort.

The search typically begins many months – if not years – out and includes campus visits and then waiting for acceptance letters to start going out in March.

Options include single-gender, boarding, college preparatory, faith-based, language immersion, Montessori, and special needs campuses. Securing financial assistance – a more abundant resource than many might imagine – requires navigating, too.

The Independent Schools Admission Association of Dallas offers online guidance, and its largest members typically take turns hosting early September gatherings to help parents launch their searches.

Past Dallas Private School Previews have drawn 1,000 attendees and more than 100 schools and included children’s activities and a financial aid panel. Visit
