About Providence Private Schools

Providence Private Schools are schools that provide all or some portion of Kindergarten through 12th grade education, but they do not operate as part of a public school district in Providence, RI. Private Schools are largely funded through tuition and student fees, though they may also be supported by grants and private contributions. Some Private Schools may receive a small amount of public funding, such as Rhode Island Department of Education grants for school building renovations. Private Schools have selective admissions and can choose who may enroll as a student. Public Schools, in contrast, are subject to compulsory education laws that requires Rhode Island State to provide education to all children.
