Private School Planner

Welcome to Crain’s fourth annual Private School Planner, which is our biggest edition yet.

Fully 18 area private schools and educational organizations serve up an in-depth look at everything from their educational philosophies and special programs to tuition costs, faculty-student ratios, financial-aid offerings and much more—making this a must-keep guide for families with school-age children.

In addition, writer Jane Adler delivers a full complement of features on key aspects of the private-school selection process and the types of programs and communities students and parents should expect to encounter at the school they choose. Adler starts off with a survery of how local educational institutions are integrating technology into every aspect of the curriculum—and turning kids into computer coders starting as young as preschool.

Speaking of preschool, Adler next explores what it takes to complete a successful private preschool search in the Chicago area. She then examines how parents and students alike can find the perfect private high school fit. Finally, Adler showcases the many ways in which area private schools foster increased parental involvement and welcome new parents into the educational community.

All told, this guide provides a wealth of information for parents making one of life’s most important decisions for their children. And Private School Planner also provides a wealth of opportunity for anyone looking to reach that audience.
