Private schools (sometimes called “independent schools”) are primary and secondary schools not administered by the Nova Scotia government. These schools generally charge an annual tuition fee for each child attending. Students benefit from smaller class sizes, more individual attention and some private schools offer specialized programs not available in the public system. Private schools must adhere to educational guidelines set by the provincial Department of Education, and are routinely inspected for quality, safety, and standard of instruction.
