Students in Norway generally attend public schools for secondary education. Until 2005, Norwegian law stated that private secondary schools were illegal unless they offered a 'religious or pedagogic alternative', so the only private schools in existence were religious (Christian), Steiner/Waldorf, Montessori and Danielsen schools. The first 'standard' private upper secondary schools opened in the autumn of 2005.

There are a number of private schools in Oslo, teaching different curricula. Private schools are popular with expats, as the language of instruction is often a mix of English and Norwegian, and taught at a more affordable price than international schools.

Below are some of the more popular private schools in Oslo.
