I think keystone is awesome. I have known several people to go through there, and have two friends (maybe more like acquaintances) that currently send there kids there - nothing but rave reviews. As mentioned above though - not in N/NW.

There is also Buckner Fanning - which is right by our house in N/NC. It and concordia are a stones throw and also highly regarded.

My husband is starting a new job there and that is why we are moving on such short notice. St Mary's Hall looks excellent, but is a little to pricey. I want tuition to be about 5k a year for each of my kids.

Castle Hills First Baptist School on NW Military has tution about what you are looking, perhaps less. The elementary school is excellent and the school is from pre-K thru high school.

St Matthews would be my choice if you could get in. I have a friend who enrolled her dd at Rolling Hills Academy this year and was not too pleased. She will be taking her out and enrolling her at St George Episcopal.

I have two boys and two nieces that attend the Atonement Academy. We have been there for the past five years and have been pleased with their performance. My boys will be in second and fourth grades and my nieces are in eighth and a freshman in high school. They are truly an acedemic school. They were recently recognized as a Blue Ribbon school. All the grades are accelerated. They are however very structured. This is sometimes a problem for some parents. They do go to mass every day and are taught spanish and latin as mandatory subjects. The school is very tight knit and you feel like a community. Teachers and students recognize you by name after you have been there a while. We feel it is worth our investment. I encourage you to call Mr. Arndt who is the Head Master. He can provide you with more information.

My son just graduated from St. Thomas Episcopal. It is from preschool to 5th grade, however. They do have about the lowest tuition outside of Catholic schools-about 5800 next year. It's located right at the 281/1604 intersection.

Default St Luke's Catholic

If you can get in here I would really try as hard as you can. However, there is a waiting list and I know on the weekend leading up to monday morning open registration parents sleep in the parking lot for 2 nights to get the best spots - this does not guarantee anything though... Academics are very well regarded and the school has an excellent reputation. We are not from here, but when we meet people who are from here they always ask us if we can help get thier kids in - amazing! We have noticed that most families do not care about how much money the other has (do not get me wrong, there are some very wealthy families - I'd say we are a little better off than most but we do not "advertise" this). But it is a very accepting atmosphere and I would highly recommend they be put on your list.

I am considering Rolling Hills Academy for my little one for next year. Would you mind stating the reasons for your friend not liking that school. So far I've heard more pros than cons, but the more info the better. Send me a direct message if you prefer.
Thanks
