Choosing a private school can be daunting task, but Berean Christian School has created a free guide to help parents navigate the process. “Just Right: How to Choose the Best Private School for Your Kids” is a comprehensive guide for parents who want to select a school that will best meet their children’s educational and extracurricular needs. The guide was originally released in 2013, but has been updated with some new information. Plus, it now contains a helpful at-a-glance decision making tool that allows parents to rank the most important aspects of a private school while navigating the process.
“In my 30 year career as a counselor and educator, I’ve learned there is a ‘just right’ fit for every child,” said George Waller, headmaster of Berean Christian School. “We wanted to share a step-by-step plan that parents can use to find that fit. Even if they don’t choose Berean Christian, we know that the guide will help families find the schools that fit their needs.”
Choosing the right private school involves the consideration of quite a few factors, including budget, the specific learning needs of each child, extracurricular activities, facilities, student-teacher ratios, and the education level of teachers—to name a few.
“Just Right: How to Choose the Best Private School for Your Kids” gives parents clear steps to follow, as well as checklists to use during the vetting process: 1) Identify needs; 2) Survey schools; 3) Visit schools; and 4) Make the decision.
The book is intended to be helpful for parents with children of all ages. To download a free copy, visit http://justtherightschool.com.
