Religious school Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_school

A religious school is a school that either has a religious component in its operations or its curriculum, or exists primarily for the purpose of teaching aspects of a particular religion.


A school can either be of two types, though the same word is used for both in some areas:

Religious teaching[edit]

Institutions solely or largely for teaching a particular religion, often outside regular school

General education[edit]

Institutions providing general education but run by a religious group, or in some way giving extra weight to a particular religion
