Day programs, as the name suggests, are distinguished from boarding programs, with students attending during the day while living at home. They offer the benefits of a boarding environment, including world class academics, a wide range of extracurricular activities, and a rich academic culture. At schools that also offer boarding, day programs can provide a valuable entrée to students in the early and middle years who intend to board during the secondary years. To learn more, read our guide to private school living arrangements.
Curricula and programs vary based on the type of school but can include everything from arts focused to faith-based (such as Christian and Catholic) to Reggio-inspired schools and preschools, and AP, IB, or international programs. Before and after school programs may also be available, plus tutoring and learning study assistance, and a range of activities, languages, humanities and social sciences, mathematics, natural sciences, technology, sports, arts and academic, or social clubs.
