Southern Teachers serves the most outstanding college preparatory schools in the South—day and boarding, single-sex and coed, faith-based and nonsectarian, traditional and progressive—from preschool through postgraduate programs, all tailored to fit students’ learning needs and aspirations.

They are “independent” both financially—funded by parents’ tuition and charitable giving—and pedagogically.  They are free to design curriculum and innovate in the classroom.  They seek constant improvement, set high standards, and hold themselves accountable for student success.  They nurture a sense of family, community, and service to others.

We serve over 600 independent schools in the South—and we continue to add new members as our reputation continues to grow.
