Provide Every Advantage

Private School Education is designed to be worth the investment! Students thrive in a safe and supportive environment with personalized attention, involved parents, motivated classmates who love to learn, abundant opportunities for growth and interest exploration, and the special attention given to character development.
The benefits are well known, but private school education can be a substantial investment for many families. Data shows, however, that early advantages accumulate for students who attend private school, and these advantages help to ensure future success and opportunities. Clairbourn is designed from the earliest grades on up to promote top high school acceptances, future college attendance, and career and life success.
