Private Schools

Allegany County presents many options for parents regarding childhood educations. Among these options, are the various private Catholic and non-denominational schools in the area. These learning institutions emphasize spirituality, humanism, and ethics along with strong academic curricula. The schools operate in a Christian environment where students are consistently exposed to the philosophies of tolerance, understanding, and reverence.

Children attending these schools will participate in rigorous academic programs to prepare them for the educational and personal demands of their futures. Well-trained and dedicated staff members help to reinforce high academic standards while focusing on morals and values. Young people of all faiths and social backgrounds are welcome and tuition assistance may be available.

In addition to these schools, the area also offers an alternative learning institution that gives parents an option for those children (ages 11-18) who are troubled and in need of extra guidance and encouragement.
