If you and your children are considering private school education options, from pre-kindergarten to high school, the fall season is traditionally an opportune time of the year to visit and explore the many schools that dot our region. The following list of schools (alphabetically ordered) includes most located in the following counties: Anne Arundel, Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Talbot, Queen Anne’s, a several beyond. We advise to call ahead and confirm the dates or to schedule private appointments. Within our upcoming January 2018 issues, we’ll publish the regional Private School Guide, which includes winter/spring open house dates, as well as each school’s “vitals” (tuition cost, student/teacher ratio, etc.). Enjoy perusing and possibly visiting the following schools this fall.
