It’s that time of year again when Private Schools are holding their Open Houses for the following school year. This year will look very different with many schools holding Virtual Open houses to introduce their programs to parents and families, while remaining socially distant in light of COVID-19. Although this year’s Open House forum will be unique, it will be more important than ever due to a recent increase in inquiries and applications prompted by the changing educational environments across all schools in response to the Novel Coronavirus pandemic. Are you thinking of changing your children’s’ education plan or have you always planned for a private education? Regardless of what brought you to explore private education, we’re here to help you understand your options with our 2020 list of local and respected private school institutions.
