St. Louis Private schools
St. Louis Private Schools rely on tuition payments and funds from nonpublic sources such as religious groups, endowments, grants, and charitable donations from affiliated parishes. A private school selects students who apply to attend and criteria for acceptance and competition varies for each school. Some are coed or single sex. The St. Louis area has a larger percentage of private schools per capita as opposed to other areas in the United States. You will find many operated by Catholic parishes or Protestant denominations. In addition, other faith-based schools such as Jewish, Methodist, or Muslim may also be considered Parochial. Most private schools in St. Louis are parochial schools. The curriculum at these schools also includes religious teachings. It is not required that a student be a certain religion in order to enroll in a parochial school, but they will attend religious education classes and services.
St. Louis Charter Schools
St. Louis Charter schools started to get more popular at the end of the last century. A charter school is funded and operated by an organization of parents, teachers, and for-profit companies. A charter school still receives tax dollars, but is also able to raise private funding, excluding tuition costs. These schools follow the basic syllabus of the state they are in. However, they usually do not adhere to as many regulations as conventional schools. There is less red tape and accountability to school boards or government.
