Celebrating Independent Schools
On this 4th of July, it seems most fitting to celebrate the independence of our schools. Our schools that are uniquely mission driven offer families choices to find the right school for their child. Every independent school has its own unique perspective, core values, philosophy, and approach to education. Each school is governed by a Board of Trustees, not a government entity. Our funding is also independent; relying on tuition revenues and charitable contributions. Our independence is real and regardless of the challenges that sometimes poses, we are to celebrate that independence on this day too.
NAIS highlights the advantages of independence schools, including one of the most important reasons: the independence of our curriculum.
Independent school teachers have the freedom to create educational experiences that meet each child’s needs, without state mandates on curriculum, textbooks, and testing."

Happy 4th of July!!
