INDEPENDENT SCHOOL GUIDE


HELPFUL ADVICE

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENTS So, you’re considering an independent school for your child. Good call. Now more than ever it’s essential that students be prepared for change, equipped for lifelong learning and eager to embrace the challenges of life. They need a sense of independence that is guided by the experience of mentors and guarded by a great institution of learning. Ask parents why they chose an independent school for their children and the list of reasons is long: great teachers, smaller classes, more personal attention, a welcoming atmosphere, and the chance to explore new opportunities both in and out of the classroom. Independent schools are where many of our best academic professionals can be found, and, after all, how successful or well-prepared could any of us be without the right teachers and advisors to show us the proverbial path? These men and women are there not simply to teach the correct answers but to impart the ability to ask the right questions in the first place. Talented educators and academic professionals provide the tools we need — parents and children alike — to make the wisest choices for ourselves. To find the independent school best able to meet your needs, read on. Consider the myriad winding paths you can follow, and then take your own first step. The schools and educators within this Independent School Guide are there to light the way.

HELPFUL ADVICE

FINDING L O O H C S T H IG R E TH

The realization that an independent school is vital to your child’s development is an important first step — but where do parents start in finding the institution that’s right for them? There’s a huge variety of potential choices that different families will view from different perspectives, depending on circumstances and goals. That’s where this guide and the Commission on Independent Schools come in to provide a helping hand. Two helpful lists for you and your family should be created before beginning any detailed questioning: Detail the particular school features parents prefer for their children and outline your child or children’s specific needs as well as their interests. The next step is a matter of communication. Take some time to sit down and write an e-mail, compose a letter or place a phone call to any school of interest and ask for a copy of its mission statement. All schools that are affiliated with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges — and many others as well — have such statements in print, which they can supply via traditional mail or electronically. As they read each mission statement, parents should consider whether the school’s stated aspirations match theirs, and whether a particular institution has unique features that are attractive to them and applicable to their child’s needs. The detailed questions that follow should produce most or all of the remaining information parents will need. Parents can then weigh this information against the specific needs of their own child.

INDEPENDENT SCHOOL GUIDE


HELPFUL ADVICE

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS What is an independent school? Independent schools are a particular kind of nonprofit private school, distinguished by having a freestanding board of trustees that is solely responsible for the school and by being independently funded, primarily by tuition.

Are all independent schools the same? Within the Association of Independent Schools in New England membership there is an extraordinary range of schools, from small elementary schools to big boarding schools, and everything in between. While most schools are coed, a number are single-sex. Many schools have a particular religious affiliation or follow a particular educational philosophy. Some schools define themselves as traditional in their approach; others see themselves as progressive. There is much more variety within the world of independent schools than there is in public schools, because public schools must all follow the same standards and prepare for the same standardized tests.

What does it mean to be accredited? An AISNE-accredited school has undergone a rigorous and thorough process that includes the creation of a self-study document that describes current practice and establishes a set of priorities for future action in all areas of the school, such as curriculum, staffing, admissions, finance, governance, health and safety. After completing the self-study, the school hosts a team of teachers and administrators from other independent schools who visit the school for three days and prepare a comprehensive report that includes both commendations and recommendations for future action. Schools are expected to address the recommendations over the next few years. There are interim reports and an interim visit scheduled during the ten-year cycle to monitor progress

What’s involved in applying to an independent school? There are a number of steps to follow, including doing your homework to pick the schools that will be a good match, visiting the schools, filling out an application, filling out financial aid forms, arranging for any required testing, and arranging to have your current school send records and evaluations. Remember that the admission professionals at our schools are there to help you every step of the way.
