10 Common Web Pages Every Private School Website Has

Every Private School Website

Building a private school website is a big task, but it’s one that’s well worth the effort. Your website is often the first impression potential students and families will have of your school, so it’s important to make sure it reflects the values and mission of your institution.

While every private school website is different, there are some common pages that should be included on every site. In this post, we’ll take a look at 10 of the most important pages for private school websites.

1. Homepage

The homepage is often the first page visitors will see when they come to your site, so it’s important to make a good impression. Include a welcoming message, photos or videos of your school, and links to important information like your mission statement, admissions process, and contact information.

2. About Us

School website developers almost always have to include an ‘About’ page. The about us page is a chance to tell your school’s story and give visitors a sense of what makes your institution unique. Include information on your history, mission, and values, as well as any accreditations or awards your school has earned. This is also a good place to include testimonials from students, parents, and alumni.

3. Admissions

The admissions page should provide an overview of the process for applying to your school, as well as any requirements or deadlines that potential applicants need to be aware of. Include links to forms and applications, as well as contact information for your admissions office.

4. Academics

The academics page is a great place to showcase the programs and courses your school has to offer. Some relevant information to include on this page are an overview of your curriculum, information on special programs or clubs, and list of any unique academic offerings.

5. Student Life

The student life page is a chance to give visitors a glimpse into what day-to-day life is like at your school. This page should shine some light on the student experience, both inside and outside of the classroom. Information on extracurricular activities, sports teams, and any other organizations or clubs that students can get involved in are also important to have here.

6. Campus Life

Since students will spend numerous hours at your school, it only makes sense to promote this page.  The campus life page should include information about the facilities and grounds, as well as any unique features of your school. This is also a good place to showcase any safety or security measures you have in place.

7. Alumni

The alumni page is a great way to connect with former students and promote your school to potential students. The alumni page typically has an overview of the benefits of staying connected with your school, as well as information on how to stay involved. This page may also include a directory of alumni, which can be sorted by class year or location.

8. Giving

The giving page is an important way to connect with potential donors and promote philanthropy within your school community. Include information on how to make a gift, as well as any giving opportunities that are currently available. This page may also include stories about how donations have made a positive impact on your school.

9. News

Every school needs a news page, whether they want to call it news or a blog.  This is a great way to keep your community up-to-date on what’s going on at your institution. Be sure to post regularly and promote your posts through your social media channels.

10. Contact Us

The contact us page should include all of the different ways that visitors can get in touch with your school. This may include your mailing address, phone number, email address, and social media links. You may also want to include a contact form for visitors to fill out if they have specific questions or requests.

These are just a few of the essential pages that every private school website needs. By including these pages on your site, you can be sure that you’re providing visitors with the information they need to learn more about your institution.
