Independent Day Schools
Independent schools are those that are funded privately and/or through tuition dollars. They do not fall under public school districts and are not governed by a diocese or national religious organization (these are typically referred to as "parochial schools"). Although they are not governed, per se, by a state or national organization, many independent schools in the United States hold membership in a national or regional professional organization such as the National Association of Independent Schools. These organizations hold their members to high standards in the areas of administration, education, and ethical behavior.
