What is a Private or Proprietary School?
"Private schools are generally 'not-for-profit' institutions run by private individuals, foundations, or corporations. These days, such schools offer not only non-degree vocational training, but also bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and even Ph Ds.
Proprietary schools are generally 'for-profit' institutions run by private individuals or corporations. These schools offer the same programs as private schools.
In the last decade, enrollment in not-for-profit and for-profit post-secondary schools has grown by almost 60 percent, to about 365,000 students. According to a study of the Education Commission of the States, the number of two-year not-for-profit and for-profit colleges has risen by 78 percent, while the number of four-year for-profit and not-for-profit colleges has jumped by a whopping 266 percent.
Years ago, such students might have enrolled in the local community college. Today, however, many students view private and proprietary schools as a faster and more flexible alternative. The schools are designed to accommodate people with families, jobs, or other responsibilities."
