Holy Family Academy and Immanuel Christian School are private schools that each provide an opportunity to combine religious education with rigorous class work.

MMI Preparatory School in Freeland is an independent school choice. MMI Preparatory Schoolhas a tradition of educational excellence that dates back to 1879. Students from sixth through 12th grades utilize the latest scientific and computer equipment to enhance their education. In recent years, nearly 100 percent of MMI's graduates have gone on to college, yet more than half of its students receive financial aid while they're at MMI. While MMI is best known for its college-preparatory curriculum, the school has also expanded its arts and humanities program to ensure a student's well-rounded education.

All of these schools provide a wide range of extracurricular activities. From athletics to the arts, our children have the opportunity to broaden their experiences outside the classroom. Our schools remain alive with activity long after the final bell as students conduct their Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science experiments, prepare legal briefs for a mock trial competition, lift weights before an athletic competition or practice for a holiday concert.
