How Area Private Schools are Opening for Fall 2020

While most of Maryland’s school districts are starting the 2020–2021 school year virtually, private schools are able to offer some in-person schooling or hybrid options.

If you are considering a move to a private school due to distance learning woes or otherwise, many private institutions are still accepting applications for the fall.

We asked private schools to tell us how they will start the school year. Below are their responses, and keep your eyes out here for information on schools as it becomes available.

You can find more about area private schools at our Private School Directory.
