The first day at their new private high school is likely to feel like their first day of kindergarten all over again – everything is foreign, activities and schedules aren't familiar, and everyone at school is a stranger. But with just a little extra support, you can help make sure that your teen's first day at private school is a success.

You might decide to hire a private tutor for your child that comes to your house one or more times a week in order to help your child understand the subject material with a greater level of thoroughness.
