Why Choose an Independent School?

As a parent, you are in the fortunate position of having a wide range of independent school choices available to you in the New York area.

This advantage brings with it the responsibility of evaluating which school will be the right match for your family to ensure your child's maximum growth and instill a life-long love of learning.

Independent schools offer a quality education that incorporates small classes, individual attention, and highly qualified teachers. ISAAGNY schools include programs from early childhood through high school. Independent school objectives are not just about high test scores, college acceptances, or sports and arts achievements. They offer advanced and eclectic courses, as well as extra-curricular activities that are essential to a well-rounded individual. While specific independent schools’ missions vary, parents can expect a wide array of offerings within the academic, arts, and athletic areas at any independent school.
