Nonpublic School Services

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.

Definiton of a Nonpublic School in New Jersey
