Florida's Private Schools

A private school is defined in Section 1002.01(2), Florida Statutes, as "an individual, association, copartnership, or corporation or department, division, or section of such organizations, that designates itself as an educational center that includes kindergarten or a higher grade" and is below the college level. Private elementary and secondary schools in Florida are not licensed, approved, accredited, or regulated by the Florida Department of Education (department). Private schools are required by statute to complete an annual online survey to provide information for inclusion in a statewide Directory of Private Schools.

The Directory of Private Schools is maintained by the department as a service to the public, governmental agencies, and other parties that are interested in obtaining information about Florida private schools. The department's intent in maintaining the directory is not to regulate, control, approve, or accredit private schools. As such, the accuracy of data submitted pursuant to the annual online survey is not verified by the department and does not imply approval or accreditation. The directory may be accessed online at: .
