The New Jersey Department of Education recognizes the role of nonpublic education as part of the entire state-wide education system. This site has been designed to inform nonpublic schools, school districts, and the public about the services that are available to New Jersey's nonpublic schools in accordance with state and federal law.

Definition of a Nonpublic School in New Jersey

A nonpublic school means an elementary or secondary school within the state, other than a public school, offering education for grades kindergarten through 12, or any combination of them, wherein any child may legally fulfill compulsory school attendance requirements and which complies with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 [N.J.S.A. 18A:46A-2(b)].

Nonpublic schools are eligible to receive services for their students through several state and federal programs. The programs are administered through the public school district in which the nonpublic school is located. To be eligible for services, a nonpublic school must be registered with the New Jersey Department of Education and must complete the Nonpublic Enrollment Report annually, located in the NJDOE Homeroom.
