  CHOOSING A SCHOOL: Current List of Nonpublic Schools

Resources exist that may assist you in choosing a school - (1) North Carolina’s Division of Nonpublic Education registers and monitors nonpublic schools in the State in accordance with State statutes. (2) Parents for Educational Freedom (PEFNC) is an organization that serves as a resource to help families locate participating schools. PEFNC offers a location-based web service that generates lists of schools by address and zip code based on the individual information you provide. You can access their service, NC SchoolsAroundMe, to get a customized list of the schools closest to you. (These resources are not affiliated with SEAA or the Opportunity Scholarship Program.)
