Looking for the best Private Schools near by around Plano, McKinney, Allen, Frisco and North Dallas?

Do you have school-aged kids and are looking for the right option for their school? Plano and the surrounding areas have so many top-notch Private Schools.

There is no “one best” Private School in Plano — or anywhere for that matter. Not every school is right for every child. That is why it is important for parents to look around to find what works for your child — and what works for your family.

This guide covers Private Schools in Dallas, Frisco, McKinney, Private Schools in Plano and surrounding cities.

We have made a one-stop guide for parents in and around the Plano area to evaluate the vast selection of private schools this area offers and see which are the best private schools in Dallas.  With proximity of under a 20-mile radius to Plano, all of these schools listed should be easily commutable.  

Whether you are looking for information about enrollment, Religious Affiliation, Alternative Learning environments and much more, this list will surely point you in the right direction.  There is no “One size fits all” when it comes to education.  So we took the time to detail out specific attributes that are offered by school.  

We know deciding whether to send your child to private or public school is a big decision, both socially, financially and emotionally. We hope this guide will help the tiniest bit in making the correct decision for your child and family.  


Should my Private School have a Religious Affiliation?

Do you want a Faith Based Private school?  If so, do you want a specific religious influence, such as Lutheran or Jewish?  Within the Christian sector there are also many denominational and non-denominational options.  

What type of Learning Environment do I want?

Education is one size fits all. It is important to determine which type of learning environment your child will be most successful and comfortable. Are you looking for a special type of curriculum and format like Montessori, IB, dedicated gifted? Or are you interested in an alternative learning environment like half days or even one on one learning?

What does the Application Process look like for Private Schools?

For most families, this is a very important piece of the decision-making process. Once you have made a list of schools you are most interested in, make sure you read through their admissions pages thoroughly.

How much are the tuition fees? Are Financial Aid or Scholarships available?

Take note of extra fees, such as supplies, and application fees.  Also, look at how the tuition may increase as your child grows into higher grade levels. 

You do not want to be surprised that you are paying more once your child gets into Middle school or High School.

What are the Enrollment numbers?

Another factor to consider is the number of children enrolled in school.  Some private schools are very small with less than 50 kids total enrolled. 

Many have over 1000 children enrolled but you will also want to consider grades offered when looking at these numbers. There are some schools that offer grades 9-12 with over 1,000 children enrolled, while others are grades K-12 with only 50 enrolled.

Do you have any recommendations for private schools that people really love? I am looking for a bigger school as my children are athletic. I want them to have opportunities to play on teams. We are looking for Christian/non-denominational.

We may be moving to the area this summer so I am trying to figure out schools.

Thank you!!

There are a lot of private schools that people really love. It just depends what type you're looking for. Prestonwood and Prince of Peace are both large schools with good athletic programs. Parish Episcopal is also a good choice and is inclusive of all types of religions.

You don't want anyone missing this!

Be sure to tell your friends and family about this.
