Finding the right fit for your child’s education is vital to their academic, social, and personal growth. Buzz-area residents are fortunate in that Houston is home to many of the nation’s top private schools, most of which are located right here in our neighborhoods.
The Buzz Magazines Private School Directory, for early learning through high school, has been a valuable resource to our readers since 2016, and has been even more beneficial in helping families navigate the changing landscape of in-person, virtual, and hybrid learning.
This list is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all Houston private schools. Instead, our goal is to provide readers with a snapshot of each participating school, as a starting point in the research process.
Also, check out buzzworthy stories about local schools and students on our Schools section and read stories written by local high school students on our School Buzz blog.
