Private schools offer many benefits. Consider the following advantages offered by private education:

  • parents can exercise more control over their child(ren)'s education
  • most private schools feature smaller class sizes that allow teachers and educational assistants to offer more individual attention to each student
  • private schools offer exceptional or highly specialized educational programs that simply are not available in public schools.
  • Montessori schools and faith-based schools teach from the perspective that matches your family's beliefs.

Halifax's private schools have produced many of the top leaders in local politics, industry, business and other important sectors. (Did you know that Nova Scotia's own Sidney Crosby went to private boarding school in the US for one year?)
