Thinking about enrolling your child in a private school in Brooklyn? Also known as independent schools, private schools are funded by tuition and donations as opposed to being funded by taxpayer dollars. As such, private schools tend to have a little more flexibility when it comes to the curriculum (and some private schools in Brooklyn may not follow the Regents exam program). When applying to a private school, such as an international school, your child may need to take an entrance exam or admissions test and go through an interview process. Though tuition is a factor when attending a private school, many offer needs-based financial aid. Learn more about the private schools in Brooklyn—you’re sure to find the perfect independent school for your child in Dumbo, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Cobble Hill, Williamsburg, Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Sheepshead Bay, Red Hook, Brooklyn Heights, Bay Ridge, Greenpoint, Marine Park, Flatbush, and beyond.
