What does a Private School do?

Private schools are independently-financed learning institutions that provide more personalized classes than public schools do. Unlike public schools which receive taxpayer money, private schools receive their funding from tuition paid by families of students, grants from corporations and foundations, and other non-public sources. Because they don't receive public money, private schools have more freedom in choosing their curriculum and educational standards. Some private schools are religious schools, while others aren't.
