Our members are strictly private schools and associations of schools that are independent in philosophy: each is driven by a unique mission. They are also independent in the way they are managed and financed: each is governed by an independent board of trustees and each is primarily supported through tuition payments and charitable contributions. They are accountable to their communities and are accredited by state-approved accrediting bodies.

There are nearly 90 million children in school in America, but only about 10 percent attend private schools and about 6 of the 10 percent attend our members schools. Enrollment in our programs and platform has remained steady since 2005.
