Top Macomb County Private Schools

Searching for Macomb Christian schools and private education options? Here's a roundup of top Macomb County private schools.

It’s important to search thoroughly when looking for a school for your child. If you’re considering private school options, no doubt you’re in the market for the best private schools in Michigan. For families who live in the county of Macomb, Christian schools and Montessori schools are abundant. To help you sift through the many great options, we’ve compiled a list of Macomb County private schools.

Note on costs: Private schools don’t receive money from the state school funds, so they are financed through corporate gifts and grants, religious institutions (if they’re parochial) and tuition from those who attend. Fees vary greatly – from $1,000 to as much as $30,000 a year. However, don’t assume that a school is out of your financial range. Most offer scholarships, for both academic excellence or financial hardship. Check with the school you’re interested in sending your child to find out what the cost will be to attend.
