When it comes to your kids’ education, the choices can seem endless. Finally decided on private school over public? Your journey’s just getting started. How much does annual tuition run? What’s the school’s religious affiliation, if any? How does the admissions process work? Will your child receive one-on-one attention and instruction? And this: is it all worth it in the end? The money, the stress, the waking-up-early-to-drive-the-kids-to-school-on-the-other-side-of-town-and-doing-it-all-over-again-that-afternoon?
