America's private school system operates independently from the public school system. Private schools are funded through tuition fees and donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations, and are not funded by local, state, or federal taxes. Private schools are free to determine their own curriculum, admissions criteria, and standards. Private schools also have autonomy to decide which students to admit, and often offer smaller class sizes and more individualized instruction than public schools. Private schools generally tend to be more expensive than public schools, and may require additional fees for enrollment, extracurricular activities, and other services.
