Ultimate Guide to Private Schools in OKC

0

Making decisions about our children’s education is one of the most daunting tasks we face as moms – especially in the environment we are living in today. As we wade through these ever-muddying waters, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide of private schools in and around Oklahoma City. Whether you need to make alternate plans for the 2020-2021 school year, or you’re getting a jump start on the 2021-2022 school year, you’ve come to the right place!

It is our belief that there is a “right fit” for every family, and because we cater to the greater Oklahoma City area, your options cover a large area. We hope this helps you decide what is best for you and your family! This guide is a paid listing, brought to you by Oklahoma City Mom and St. Mary’s Episcopal School, as well as the schools featured at the top this guide.

St. Mary's Episcopal School

St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Edmond has been helping children reach their highest potential for over 40 years. We believe that childhood is a time to cherish and protect. As a preschool (age 2.5) through 5th grade school, St. Mary’s students are afforded the opportunity to celebrate successes, learn from failures, and grow into exceptional young people in an environment supporting faith, character, and community.

We adhere to the highest levels of sanitation, hygiene, and safety practices, while remaining focused on creating learning environments full of love, joy, and enthusiasm.

St. Mary’s is committed to opening school on August 19th, while acknowledging that there are some families who may be concerned about returning to school. A virtual option will be available for all students, and families will have the flexibility to choose the format that best suits their needs throughout the year.

As an Episcopal school, we embrace a style and culture unique to other private schools. Inclusivity and diversity are tenets that matter deeply to us as we welcome children and families of all faith traditions and backgrounds to St. Mary’s. Each and every student at St. Mary’s is beloved, known, and an important part of our community. 

Keystone Adventure School and Farm, an accredited preschool and elementary school in Edmond, will begin school on August 13 in a virtual model. But Keystone, launching a space theme for the year called “Mission KASAF: Keystone Adventures in Space and Further,” offers something different in their virtual learning scenario: the chance to still be together in person.

Children will spend mornings online one-on-one or in small groups with their teachers, as teachers attend to each child’s individual learning needs. In the afternoons, students are invited to campus in small groups for outdoor-only, one-hour visits to campus 2-3 times each week. During these visits to campus, students will be with teachers or staff participating in a hands-on project, PE, art, or caring for pasture animals. This allows the Keystone students to maintain and continue to build strong relationships with friends, staff, and even the animals.

When children are on campus, Keystone has implemented new safety protocols, including touchless faucets and soap dispensers, new HEPA air filters, social/physical distancing, daily wellness checks, and staggered pick-ups and drop-offs. When indoors, all children will wear face coverings: sun hat face shields for preschool-1st grade, and masks for 2nd-5th grade. All staff will be masked.

Whether in person or online, Keystone’s mission remains the same: to value the curiosity of each child, nurture compassion, inspire a love of learning, and to allow children the time and experience necessary to embrace their intellectual, creative, and social selves.

King's Gate Christian School

EXPERIENCE the KING’S GATE DIFFERENCE! Preschool through high school students are not just another face at King’s Gate Christian School. King’s Gate integrates biblical truth into the hands-on, experiential education that every student receives. In-person classes start August 19th.

At King’s Gate, the average teacher-to-student ratio is 8 to 1. The small class size, along with a supportive atmosphere, keeps students relaxed and ready to learn! King’s Gate empowers students to impact the world through an eternal, Kingdom perspective. Hands-on and collaborative learning is implemented to engage students in practical problem solving. Our innovative approach includes multimedia technology, social action and a willingness to go beyond the walls of the classroom, all while integrating biblical truth into the student’s experience.
