You have the right and the responsibility to select the appropriate school to meet your child’s learning needs. No one knows your child's special traits, needs, strengths and weaknesses better than you. If you are considering a private school for your child, it is important for you to know some of the fundamental differences between private and public school in Florida.

  • Private elementary and secondary schools are not licensed, approved, accredited or regulated by the Department of Education.

  • Florida's private schools issue independent school diplomas that do not require approval from the state of Florida.

  • Florida private schools establish their own system of school accountability, grading, reporting, and evaluating and are not included in the state's measurement of public schools.

  • Private elementary and secondary schools are structured as private corporations, churches or private businesses that only report directory information and the enrollment of compulsory attendance aged students to the Department of Education.

  • Private schools are not subject to school definitions and requirements specified in education statutes and they are not under the jurisdiction of the Department of Education.                                                                                (fldoe.org)
