One of the biggest factors shaping life in Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy is the abundance of private schools in the area. Although there is a District City Council election underway, you are more likely to see signs of school open houses.
Germantown Avenue Parents, a blog for parents in Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill, has taken the heroic task of creating a master list of both public and private school open houses. This is a great time to be able to go inside the schools and talk with the administrators to see if it’s right for your children.
Private schools charge anywhere from $7000-$25,000 a year per student.
