TRA Admissions

Families researching their child’s education often look at the independent school setting.

What is an Independent School?

Independent schools are governed by a board of trustees that is solely responsible for the school and are independently funded, through tuition and fundraising. Independent schools are have:

The freedom to define their own mission
The freedom to regulate admissions
The freedom to define teacher credentials
The freedom to teach free from state curricular, textbook and testing mandates

Why Choose an Independent School?

Independent schools are known for providing a safe, nurturing environment in which students are encouraged to reach their full potential. Independent schools follow the “triangle” approach to education – student, family and school. Thus, parents are considered integral to the success of their child and are encouraged to be active participants in the life of the school.

Ask any parent why they send their child to an independent school and you will hear:

Smaller class sizes
A safe, friendly, welcoming environment
Personal attention
High academic standards
A community of like-minded parents and students

Ask students about their independent school and you will hear:

My teachers care about me
I can participate in sports and other extra-curricular activities
I like coming to school

Ask alumni about their experience and they will tell you:

I was prepared for college
I was valued as an individual
I still talk to my school friends and teachers
My teachers made an impact on my life
