Finding the right educational environment for your child can make a world of difference. At an independent day or boarding school, you will find an environment that nurtures intellectual curiosity, stimulates personal growth and independence, and encourages critical thinking and innovation. Independent schools are committed to providing students from pre-kindergarten through high school with an education that will help them develop both as students and as individuals.

The Private School Preview offers attending families the unique opportunity to meet with school representatives who are committed to helping you find the right school for your child.

The Dallas Private School Preview is sponsored by the Independent Schools Admission Association of Dallas (ISAAD).
