About

The GFLedu.org website is part of an initiative spearheaded by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, in partnership with the Broward County Public Schools; a consortium of the county’s private, faith-based, and charter schools; area university presidents; and educational and economic organizations, groups, and individuals. We are united in our belief that the state of education in Greater Fort Lauderdale/ Broward County is worth talking about and is a topic anyone considering a move to the area wishes to discuss.

Greater Fort Lauderdale’s robust educational system provides a strong foundation for the region’s high quality of life, offering a wide array of programs to meet the individual learning styles of students and their families. Along with high-quality public, independent, and private schools, the region’s colleges, universities, and vocational facilities are committed to creating career opportunities and building a skilled workforce.

This website’s purpose is to provide easy access to top-line data about the county’s educational resources, and a portal to each individual school’s website for more in-depth information. To learn more, contact Randall Deich, Director– Talent Attraction and Education, at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance at 954-627-0128 or email [email protected].

Private & Faith-Based

Greater Fort Lauderdale has more than 60 private and independent schools that meet a variety of student academic and
personal needs. More than 30,000 children in Broward attend non-public schools, which offer programs from early
childhood education through 12th grade. These schools welcome calls for information and are happy to arrange family
visits to their campuses. Many also offer bus transportation. Accredited non-public schools hold memberships in
organizations such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the Florida Council of Independent
Schools (FCIS), the Association of Independent Schools of Florida (AISF), the Florida Kindergarten Council (FKC), and
several accrediting organizations for religious, proprietary, and special needs programs.
