Question and Answers for Academics and Curriculum

question Statistics on effectiveness of overall private school education relative to the public/catholic system by means of both objective and subjective indicators.

We are not aware of any concrete studies that have been done to provide statistics that compare the two school systems. Private school alumni however praise their successes in life and their careers to the schools they attended. And studies that surveyed private school parents and students all conclude that they chose to go to private school because of these top reasons:

1. Private schools give families the choice to live where they want.
2. Families have a choice in the educational curriculum.
3. Students get more individual attention with smaller class sizes.
4. Equipment and resources are more abundantly available.
