See my link below for some average tuition prices for private schools in Louisivlle (scroll down a ways) -


I'll second the recommendation for Highlands Latin School. My wife teaches 6th grade there and, while that biases me, I objectively think it's a great school, and thought so before she went there. The students I've met have been very bright, they routinely have excellent test scores, and academic standards are very high.

Religiously, the school is broadly Christian and not specifically Protestant or Catholic. The staff and faculty seem to be pretty well distributed between the two camps, and while Bible/Christian Studies classes are a core part of the curriculum, they insist pretty heavily on not getting into divisive sectarian issues.

HLS has two campuses: the main one on Frankfort Avenue in Crescent Hill is K-12, while the campus on Shelbyville Rd. in Middletown is K-5.

I would strongly suggest not sending your child to public school in Louisville due to the fact that the public school system is continually declining. I have grown up in the Catholic school system (Saint Agnes and Sacred Heart Academy) and there is simply no comparison when it comes to the educational benefits. In addition, no public school can beat the personal attention, instilled morals, and classy families found in the private school system.

The majority of private schools in Louisville are, in fact, Catholic, however there are still a decent number of fantastic private schools without any religious connotations. I would say the top three are Collegiate, Kentucky Country Day, and Christian Academy, Collegiate definitely being the best. Although Collegiate is rather pricey at roughly $20,000 a year, give or take, with any of these three your family would enjoy a wonderful experience in seeing the impressive attention given by all faculty in nurturing your child's educational success.

As awful as the public schools are in Louisville, the Catholic and private schools are the same if not worse.....than the best public schools. Your best recourse is to look into Oldham County.

My children go to St. Mary's Academy in Prospect. I have one daughter on her way next year, one in preschool and one in kindergarden. I went to public school and my husband went to Catholic schools all of his life. I discussed schooling for a few years and I have been won over. They are truly interested in our children and my kindergardener is advanced in reading and they accomodate her and 3 other kindergardners in advanced reading groups. There is a sense of community. I do have a couple who have the money to spend and send their children to public school and love it. As I do know those who sent their children to public school and wished the opposite. I do like not having to worry about busing and other issues. They teach Spanish in the 3 yr class-preschool. I have no doubt or worry about my childs educational promise. Welcome to Louisville.
