It’s the end of the year and that signals different items for many parents. Of course the holidays and Christmas season are top of mind, but what about education?
For many parents, this time of year may be a reflection period. If you have a kid who is entering kindergarten, then you may be weighing the options of a public school versus a private school. At the same time, you may be looking for a switch in your child’s education if they are older.
In a recent article from Private School Review titled “What is Really Important in Choosing a School?,” there are several criteria that are covered that are more than likely a concern in the decision making process.
The article first cites standards or requirements as top criteria to consider when choosing a Murfreesboro private school. The standards you put forth should arrive from discussions within the family and ultimately what is in the best interest of the child. The bar that is set on the front end will help make other decisions go smoothly too.
At the core of it all, you have to be comfortable with a school as a parent. It’s easier said than done, but once your mind is at ease the decision becomes evident. Many times a first hand look at the school is a great experience. Several schools offer tours and Redeemer Classical Academy offers a one-on-one experience with the school called Coffee at The Academy during enrollment period.
Along with the mission and values of the school, finances are always a major concern along with local criteria such as the school’s distance from home or work. On these matters, Redeemer Classical Academy’s mission is one that is straightforward and it offers a competitive tuition rate for the area. In the same breath, the school has students who live outside the area and make the drive because of the educational experience the school offers to students.
When reflecting upon the process of choosing a school, many times it as important to find out the areas that aren’t a significant factor and it will let the criteria in which you are most concerned become evident.
