Just moved to North Dallas and need to understand the better (best, although this can be subjective) nondenominational private schools and/or private catholic schools, preferably in the North Dallas as far north as Frisco/McKinney (not much farther north). Any help will be extremely appreciated. Thank you

If you or anyone can direct me, it will be greatly appreciated. Not from the area and deciphering location becomes harder. Thank you

Prince of Peace Catholic 3K-8, Preston and Plano Parkway in Plano - it's a great school.
St. Marks Catholic, Alma and 15th in Plano - fine school (it's 3K-8 as well I believe)

In Dallas south of 635:
St. Rita 3K-8 Inwood and Harvest Hill just off The North Dallas Tollway, great school
St. Monica 3k-8 Midway and Walnut Hill
Christ The King (K-8 I think) Preston and Colgate (just south of Northwest Highway) Dallas

The Catholic High schools are:
Jesuit all boys 9-12 Dallas next to St. Rita above......
Ursuline all girls 9-12 Inwood and Walnut Hill Dallas
John Paul II coed 9-12 Coit and Plano Parkway Plano
Cistercian all boys 9-12 Cistercian Rd Irving (just off 114 across form The University of Dallas)
Bishop Lynch coed 9-12 Ferguson Road just north of I-30 Dallas
Hartman School coed 3k-12 coed with a lot of sex segregated classes very near Cistercian in Irving


I'd get a paper map of the eastern Metroplex and mark the schools that make sense to you and then calculate driving distances and such.

OP, where do you live ? "North Dallas" generally means the city of Dallas, not Plano, Frisco or McKinney.

We are looking to moving to Frisco/Plano area but ultimately the location of the school will play a big factor and we will move accordingly. EDS thank you this is a good place to start. Any other suggestions are very much appreciated. Thank you

If you want to do private schooling then stick to Preston Hollow, North Dallas or Far West Plano. You can't commute to good private schools from Frisco, McKinney or other suburbs further north, without loosing your sanity.

If you stay in Plano ISD part of North Dallas or Plano then you'll have a back up plan as their public schools are top notch.

As far as I know, there aren't any private schools north of Plano that are rated as "better".

Ditto the list except I wanted to amend that Cistercian is an all boys' school for middle and high school (grades 5-12)
