As with every school we have found, some private schools are incredible and some could use some more work improving. The only down side is that if you end up at one that you are not happy with, not only have you wasted your time and energy, you have also wasted a lot of money. On the average private schools tend to cost about $4,000-$10,000 a year. Some schools request a yearly minimum donation a year on top of the current tuition rate. We suggest that you read over the schools website, take a tour, and ask people who have gone there before you enroll.
