If you wish for your children to attend a private school, you will have several choices here. Please note that tuition for each school is not stated. There are several different rates for each, depending upon whether or not day care and before/after school programs are included and upon how many children there are in the family. Tuition rates change frequently and the school personnel asked that we not publish the rates. They wish to evaluate each family based on their particular situation.
