    Steve, I don't know what level of schooling you have in mind. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not have any private grade schools in the United States. In countries where religious schools are the norm, and there is a substanital LDS population, the church does operate schools -- but they are for the local school-aged children. Tonga and Samoa come to mind, because both countries are more than 30% "Mormon".

    Members of my faith get their religious education in the home when they're young. In addition, high school students can usually attend "Seminary", a program that offers week-day religious classes. They are frequently taught in the morning, before school begins. In places where there are substantial "Mormon" populations (Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, etc.), students may be released from school to go to nearby Seminary buildings for classes.

    The church operates several universities, such as Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo Utah, BYU Idaho, BYU Hawaii and the Church College of New Zealand. Since the church now has upwards of 13 Million members, it's obvious not every Mormon can go to a church-operated college. To asist members attending other universities and colleges, the church offers college-level classes in religion at institutes of religion located near many campuses.
