NYC Independent Schools

According to Parents League, independent schools are defined by the following:

An independent school is not public school, a charter school or a parochial school.  The term private school is often used interchangeably with independent school; however, there is a slight distinction between a private and an independent school.  An independent school has its own independent board of trustees, while a private school can be a part of or governed by another entity such as a church or synagogue. Independent schools are not dependent on government or church funds; funding is mainly through tuition.  Every independent school has its own unique mission and select students through their own self-defined admissions process.
