Difference between Private and Public Schools

All NHA schools are free public charter schools. They receive state funding just as ​other public schools do. NHA schools participate in all state mandated testing.

What is the difference between private school and public school?

The primary difference between private and public schools is their source of funding. Private schools usually charge tuition for each student. Private schools do not receive government funding, therefore they rely solely on tuition cost to support their school. Public schools receive per pupil funding from the government.
Some private schools require students to submit grades, test scores, and an application before being admitted.
For more information on private and public school differences, visit the National Center for Education Statistics.
