About us

For 10 years, readers have come to us for our comprehensive directories, unbiased information and well-researched content. We take the innumerable approaches to education and match prospective parents and students with the private school that best fits their learning style. By connecting parents and schools through curriculum and philosophy, we have the opportunity to create a supportive learning environment for the whole family. This year, 2019,  is a special one for us as it marks a milestone for R Media Publishing, Inc. When I started this company in 2009, I was a single mother of three girls trying to find a school that met the individual needs of my children and reinforced the values and principles I was teaching them at home. What began as daunting research to fulfill my own parenting needs, quickly turned into an opportunity to connect prospective parents with quality education. Connecting them to schools where their children could find enriched academic and extracurricular opportunities, dedicated teachers, a safe environment and a shared educational philosophy. My daughters have since graduated and have children of their own but my mission for this publication remains steadfast. Private Schools Guide has thrived alongside many amazing schools and programs in our community and we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for them. Because of their continued support and their genuine desire to see our children and community succeed,  we have been able to achieve what many tried to tell us would never happen—10 years as a print magazine! We are proud and honored that you have trusted us for 10 great years and look forward to continuing this important work we do–together!


To empower parents and advocate for our partners to ensure the growth, development and success of our children and community in South Florida.
