Start your own private school

Religious leaders, community leaders, educators, entrepreneurs, groups of parents are all people who might consider starting a private or alternative school in order to provide opportunities for themselves and others. Over 27,000 private schools already operate in the United States, but there is plenty of room and need for more schools, as well as more variety.

Fortunately, there is a fair amount of help and support available from experienced people.
