The Long Ridge School says

Our Purpose: The Long Ridge School is a diverse community of learners where children are respected as individuals with innate curiosity. We believe children flourish in a small, caring and academically challenging environment where learning is an active and joyful experience. We help children develop the skills, motivation, and values to become successful students, responsible people and lifelong learners. We believe: Children should be valued for their uniqueness, ideas and talents. Children achieve their highest potential in a challenging academic environment that addresses each child's social and emotional development. Children learn in different ways and at different rates. Children should be active participants in their own learning; we encourage children to explore, experience and investigate as part of the educational process. The natural range of abilities and levels of development typical of young children are best accommodated in multi-age groups. Children learn best in an engaging environment where themes are relevant and meaningful. Interdisciplinary studies promote a deep understanding and mastery of the skills and concepts expected at each grade level. Children thrive in a rich learning environment that includes visual and performing arts, science, technology, world languages and physical education.




Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
