Central Louisiana families have many high-quality, private school options from which to choose for their children's education. Those options range from small, parochial schools where students explore the history of the Roman Catholic Church to large schools with no formal, religious affiliation.

Alexandria-area private schools, already known for small class sizes and challenging academics, enhance the learning experience with state-of-the-art investments in educational technology. The campus of Alexandria Country Day School, for example, features a multimedia complex with an editing suite where students create and edit original films and maintain an 18,000-volume library.

Private schools challenge students as scholars and athletes. Students go on to win regional and state competitions in science and sports and earn individual honors such as being named Advanced Placement Scholar with Distinction.
